International Voluntary Service: Youth on the Move
International Voluntary Service movement encourages and supports, wherever possible, local programmes that answer the needs of the community and foster the active participation of citizens, especially young people, allowing them to encounter and understand different cultures and people. Workcamps are tools of non-formal education and open space for informal learning.
A “workcamp” is an international voluntary service project, promoting international understanding, peace and human rights, as a valuable force in the common search for human betterment. International voluntary workcamps are the most common and widespread form of international volunteering, every year 20.000 volunteers join workcamps in Europe and beyond. Workcamps generally last 2 – 3 weeks and consist of about 10 – 20 volunteers drawn from a number of countries. Projects are often in remote areas, in regions where local people may have minimal opportunity for meeting others from different countries. The volunteer groups bring new ideas and experiences into communities, providing a stimulus for ongoing work and events.
International Voluntary Service promotes intercultural understanding, peace, democratic participation and equality, in the spirit of respect for universal human rights.
Sport for All: inclusion and healthy lifestyles
The sport is for all when is guided by the idea of making the sport accessible to all sections of society, as a tool for cohesion, integration, empowerment and well-being.
The “Sport for all” is inclusive, does not isolate nor separate and is not based on selection. The “Sport for all” is not based on the rankings, because it does not need awards. The “Sport for all” is based on the attention of the specificity of the different bodies and is grounded on the idea that there are different ways and styles to learn lifelong. Ensuring the “right to sport” does not only mean to amend the discrimination against certain specific categories of people, but it also means ensuring that everyone has the possibility of being able to practice it in the appropriate facilities and that it is affordable for everyone.
Sport shouldn’t be elitist, but it must reach everyone, as it is one of the best ways to conduct a physically active and healthy lifestyle, and to fight consequently all problems, disorders and certain diseases by the lack of movement.
