Specific actions for 2014:

The CCIVS year for Peace and Human Rights

• 25 young people will be trained as trainers in peace and human rights education
• 25 staff members will be trained on advocacy and networking

Our aim:
To create a collective of trainers including NGO representatives and young people who will have the vision of a common action in the field of peace and human rights and who will be skilled to run large-scale actions.

An outcome:
CCIVS plans to end the year with a Summit for Peace and Human Rights where key stakeholders from the field of Peace and Human rights will be invited to share and exchange on the important of collective actions and international voluntary service on campaigning for peace and human rights.

CCIVS is still looking for funds to run the peace summit and co-financing for the other actions!

World Heritage Volunteers -
2014 marks the campaign Action for Sustainability!
50-70 World Heritage Volunteers (WHV) workcamps will take place in Africa, Americas, Europe and Asia.
Hundreds of volunteers will mobilise and work together with local schools and communities for heritage protection.
The World Heritage Volunteers initiative is implemented by CCIVS and the World Heritage Centre - UNESCO.

WHV workcamps gather young volunteers from different countries during a given period of time to live and work together with the local population towards a common goal: WH preservation.
The protection of heritage allows volunteers involved in the project to reflect about issues related to preservation, the symbolism of the sites where they work and the way it is embedded in local traditions. Working on a concrete site and reflecting about its past, present and future function allows keeping traditions alive and re-creating lost links.

CCIVS needs support to run the planning, monitoring and evaluation meetings for this campaign in order to invite the maximum amount of people possible from all continents and to ensure the quality of the projects being run.

International Solidarity Fund
You can sponsor the active participation of young people in projects around the world by paying into our international solidarity fund. You can support the travel costs of low income organisations in low income countries to encourage the best possible representation in our meetings

CCIVS maintains:
official relations with UNESCO,
special consultative status with ECOSOC,
liasion status with FAO.

With the support of World Heritage Centre.
