“Volunteering vs Violence” and aims to give the participants all the tools necessary to understand the relevance ofinternational volunteering, especially in times of conflict or change. Camp will have different activities and will focus on a time frame: 1945-1989 for Italy. Study camp in Rome shall focus on volunteers as Peace Builders/Peace messengers, on the history of peace-building and peace promotion through antifascism as an opposition to the most important ideology and political practice of violence in post-war Europe.
From 26th of August until 3rd September participants will explore the public space of Rome in order
to find the signs of volunteering and activism for peace, how is their presence integrated in the urban
fabric, how it affects the day-to-day life of its citizens, what impression does it create in visitors.
What meaning do historical places have nowadays? How are they perceived/used today? What do
we learn about the history and the present situation of the city (in relation to peace-building and
antifascist struggle) by walking along its streets? How is this different from the situation in your own
context? How public space might be used to express and promote ideas, how they can become
instruments for resistance and peace buildinng.
