Update from 02.11.202: It is not entirely unexpected, but since we like to plan optimistically, we are still a little disappointed to announce: The conference "100 Years of Workcamps - Peace and Solidarity for the Future", which was supposed to be held together with all non-profit workcamp organizations in Berlin this November, can unfortunately not take place.
Anniversary celebration of 100 years of international workcamps
"100 years of workcamps - Peace and Solidarity for the Future" - that is the title of the conference, which is organized jointly by the non-profit workcamp organizations in Germany. 120 volunteers from all over the world and around 100 experts from politics and science are expected as well as representatives of international youth work and local cooperation projects.
They will discuss the importance of international workcamps, develop approaches for their further development and celebrate the 100th birthday of this unique program format together. Young people's commitment to non-violent conflict resolution, solidarity and peace should be recognized and the promotion of international competence in workcamps should be emphasized.
The conference is under the patronage of the Federal Youth Minister, Dr. Franziska Giffey, who will also be present in person.
November 25th - 28th, 2020
