A great start of the school year!
Zeynep Yavuz made it!
Zeynep Yavuz, a long-time CISVer who joined the London Chapter this year, took part in the 2018 Bosphorus cross-continental swim race in July. When we closed the fundraising campaign in early September, she had managed to raise £2,936 to support CISV London Social Diversity Fund. A huge congratulations to Zeynep and thank you to our 61 generous donors!
We launched the new CISV London website on 20 September
We hope this new platform will help us communicate better within (thanks to our special members’ section) and outside of CISV London community, helping us to champion peace education and to work with you towards building a more just, inclusive and peaceful world.
At its September meeting, the Board reflected on the 2018 CISV Global Conference
Two members of our Board attended CISV Global Conference in August to represent CISV London.
The conference gathered over 500 volunteers from 65 countries for 4 days of inspiration and knowledge-sharing. The theme of the 2018 Global Conference was New Horizons, reflecting on CISV’s ambition to increase its reach and impact.
We will work towards those objectives in the months to come to ensure best-practices and great ideas could be brought back to you in London. In the meantime, you can find here more about what motivates CISV volunteers across the world and a short video about the conference.
The autumn Mini-Camp was a success
The programme was fully booked. From Friday evening to Sunday lunch time, children and staff alike had a great time delivering and participating in fun activities organised around the theme of The Greatest Showman, exploring further our annual topic of diversity. Participants to the Portugal Step Up last July had prepared during their summer programme special activities which they delivered during mini-camp.
ALL THIS FANTASTIC WORK IS MADE POSSIBLE THANKS TO VOLUNTEERS SO DON’T HESITATE TO GET IN TOUCH :)
