January 21 marked the beginning of CCIVS “From Vision to Action, Growing Capacities for Change in the IVS Movement” project. The project starts with the Training on Impact and Sustainability for campleader trainers in Germany and is hosted by VJF. In the following days leading to January 27, participants will discuss the topics of Sustainability and Environment and ways to increase the existing capacities and potential within IVS organisations in this particular thematic area.
Members getting to know each other through interactive discussions.
The training has managed to gather more than 20 participants from 14 organisations around the world.
