Annual Review building global friendship





Page 2

Review of the year This has been yet another busy year for CISV International, our National and Promotional Associations and Chapters. We held 205 international programmes and 36 local activities for over 10,000 participants worldwide. It is exciting to consider the actions we have inspired those participants to take and the difference that, together, we can make. We came to the end of our most recent Strategic Plan in 2009. Its success is evident on every page of this Annual Review. The development of our education and training content, delivery and resources has exceeded our hopes and expectations. We have increased our level of cooperation with other Non Governmental Organizations; partnerships that have bought great benefit, including joint educational research opportunities.

CISV Archive

A comprehensive review of our programme hospitality and fees structure, combined with long-range programme planning, allows us to look forward to enhanced financial security in a difficult economic climate. Our Chapters are stronger and making a real impact in their local communities. An International Taskforce of Inclusive Practices has spearheaded inclusion awareness-raising initiatives. We are mindful that appreciating and valuing diversity is one of our



four educational principles and demands our constant attention, both in our programmes and within the organization. We now look ahead with our new three year Strategic Plan. The result of an organization-wide consultation process, this Strategic Plan was approved at the Annual International Meeting (AIM) 2009. CISV is committed to working for a more just and peaceful world through educating children, young people and adults to inspire them to be active global citizens. To help us realise this ambition, the focus of our Strategic Plan is on increasing the quantity and enhancing the quality of our educational programmes, projects and activities. Over the next three years, we will be concentrating our efforts on the continuous improvement of our education and training. Central to this will be two important research projects evaluating the impact of our new educational resources and our Train The Trainer structure. We will also be introducing measures to make sure we take a consistent approach in our international and national trainings. Our Chapters and their volunteers are our life-blood. They actively contribute, educate and inspire by organizing our

approved at our AIM. Our particular thanks for his considerable contribution to this process must go to Brett Vottero of CISV USA, who was duly appointed the first President of the Company.

We have an important purpose and message that we want to share with as many individuals, communities and organizations as possible. Our third area of focus is on raising our profile in a way that is consistent, effective and engaging. To help guide our activities, in 2010 we will be carrying out a wide-ranging review of all of our communications. Our 2010 AIM will provide the venue for the launch of our year-long 60th Anniversary celebrations, which will give us a wonder ful opportunity to publicise who we, what we believe and how we put our beliefs into action to as wide an audience as possible.

As I near the end of my term as President of CISV International, I see so much to be proud of and celebrate. It has been an enormous privilege to serve as President of our wonder ful organization and to work and meet with so many of our volunteers and staff. I want to thank my colleagues on the International Executive Committee, our Secretary General and our staff at the International Office and in various National Association offices. Most of all, I want to thank our dedicated volunteers at every level around the world without whom we simply could not organize and operate. We have a vision of creating a more just and peaceful world through educating and inspiring action. It is only through our shared commitment and hard work that we can achieve so much and dream so high.

An event of some note for CISV International in 2009 was the setting up of our own insurance company. CISV International has long been concerned to find a stable and cost-effective solution to our global public liability insurance needs. Following investigation, the CISV International Insurance Company (CISV IIC) was officially set up in the US state of Kentucky in late 2009. The first Board of CISV IIC was

CISV Passport brought the philosophy of Peace Education back to life. It reminds me why I'm doing this.

Teemu Alanen, CISV Finland

CISV educates and inspires action Educate


As an international Peace Education organization CISV inspires action through a network of local Chapters, educational programmes and projects. CISV’s Peace Education focuses on four key content areas: ● Diversity ● Human Rights ● Conflict and Resolution ● Sustainable Development

CISV inspires action based on upholding, celebrating and protecting our universal human rights, diversity within communities and the natural environment. We believe that through these actions and learning about peaceful ways to resolve conflicts, each of us can contribute to achieving our vision.


These content areas are directly linked to our four educational principles, which unite and inspire us as an organization. ●

We appreciate the similarities between people and value their differences

We encourage the resolution of conflict through peaceful means

We support social justice and equality of opportunity for all

We support the creation of sustainable solutions to problems relating to our impact upon each other and the natural world.

They reflect the issues that are important to us and the ideals we uphold. CISV Archive



All of our programmes and activities are designed to encourage volunteers and participants to think about how they can make a positive difference in the world. In other words, how they can become become Active Global Citizens. Naturally this means different things for different people depending on their age and circumstances. For example, this may mean an eleven year old planning to give a presentation to her school on the need for them to take on an environmental project, or a fifteen year old raising awareness of racism within a group of friends, or an adult planning to get actively involved in a community based project for refugees.

Passport for Peace Education CISV has a dynamic and distinctive approach to Peace Education, which is described clearly in the Passport. This handy, passport-sized booklet is an easy-to-read introduction to CISV’s Peace Education, our principles, content areas and methods. But more than that, it is a clear declaration of who we are, what we believe and what we aspire to achieve. Launched in April 2009, the Passport has now been distributed worldwide and is at the core of all our programmes, training and profile raising. Passport has quickly become an essential item in the CISVer’s toolkit; as a reminder of experience gained, a motivator to action and a great way to spread the word about CISV and active global citizenship. Thanks to our National Associations, the Passport is now available in Spanish, Turkish, Portuguese, Danish, with versions in Italian, French, Hebrew and Japanese underway. This helps make the Passport even more accessible and reinforces our commitment to educating and inspiring even more people to become Active Global Citizens.

CISV has a vision of a more just and peaceful world. We believe that we can all take responsibility for making this possible.

The programme was useful for us as parents as well as for our children. CISV’s purpose is to prepare individuals to become active and contributing members of a peaceful society and I felt that the programme really helped achieve this objective.

Educating and Inspiring Active Global Citizens CISV uses an informal approach called experiential learning in all of our programmes, which can be described as ‘learning by doing’. It is an active, effective and fun way to learn and develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge needed to become an Active Global Citizen.

Village 11 year-olds/28 days

Interchange 12 – 15 year-olds/14 – 28 days

Early life experiences shape the way we see the world

Our cultures begin in our homes

Early life experiences shape the way we see the world. CISV Villages are international camps that inspire children to imagine a more just and peaceful world. The children come together from many different countries to take part in a variety of educational, cultural and fun activities. A Village creates a safe setting in which children from around the world learn about each other’s lives and how to communicate, cooperate and live together. The Village learning experiences, and the friendships made, last a lifetime.

This exchange programme promotes intercultural learning by placing participants from one Chapter with families from another Chapter in a different country. The exchange has two phases, one in each country, allowing each participant to be both a visitor and a host. Not only is this a profound cultural experience for the young participants, but it also engages the whole family, and potentially the broader community, in the learning experience.

Summer Camp 14 – 15 year-olds/21 days

Seminar Camp 17 – 18 year-olds/21 days

Young people learn when given the chance to lead

Exchanging ideas; a powerful tool for global learning

Young people learn when given the chance to lead. International Summer Camps encourage the young people to take a leading role in planning and organising activities. The participants and adult leaders plan activities around a theme drawn from CISV’s Peace Education content, for example identity, democracy, environmental protection. Summer Camps provide great opportunities for young people to learn about how these issues are thought about and dealt with in different countries and cultures. Just as importantly, they make friends and gain a wider appreciation of how life is for people in different countries.

This personally challenging, intensive programme is coordinated by the young people who are participating in it. They develop their own agenda and explore global issues based on their own backgrounds and interests, through activities and in-depth discussions. Seminar Camp’s group-living environment encourages them to collaborate, and to take a creative approach to problem-solving and resolving differences that can arise from healthy discussion.

We want all of our participants to have wonderful and exciting educational experiences. We are committed to delivering programmes that are fun, exciting and importantly, have Peace Education at their very core. CISV’s Peace Education is developed directly from our educational principles, our Statement of Purpose and our vision of a more just and peaceful world. We have an evaluation framework that helps us to ensure that all of our programmes meet our standards. We also collect evidence that helps us to share best practice and improve what we do, year on year.

The international interaction was intense and captivating, the opportunity was an eye opener for me . . . I am certain that my experience at the Youth Meeting has immensely improved my personal development in leadership and organizational skills

Steve Tene, CISV Kenya

Learning by doing In 2009, 16 countries hosted 36 Mosaic projects for 2,400 participants. There was a record number of Youth Meetings; first time hosts were CISV Algeria, Kenya and Slovenia.

Youth Meeting 12 – 19+ year-olds/8 or 15 days

Mosaic All ages/Any length

Small gatherings inspire big ideas

Local communities reflect the wider world

Youth meetings bring groups of participants together from different countries within the region. They explore aspects of Peace Education related to a specific theme and share their different perspectives. They also think about how they can apply what they have gained from their experience, such as knowledge of the theme along with planning and communication skills, within their own community.

Mosaic offers our Chapters a model for community-based Peace Education. Each project responds to local needs and interests in meaningful ways. Most of the projects are planned and delivered in cooperation with partner organizations and come in many shapes and sizes. Mosaic projects create an authentic learning experience for local participants of all ages and deliver a benefit to the wider community.

International People’s Project (IPP)

Junior Branch 11 – 25 year-olds/ongoing

Peace Education is a global movement

Go out, find out, help out International People’s Projects are innovative learning programmes that actively contribute toward identified needs within a community. In partnership with a local organization, a group of participants from different countries work together on community projects related to a specific theme, like environmental degradation or immigration. When they are not working on the project, participants bring knowledge of the chosen theme from their own cultural contexts and take turns leading educational activities.



Junior Branch is an international network of young people taking local action, while inspiring and enabling others to do the same. Based in our Chapters, Junior Branches are self-governing groups that organize activities throughout the year. While each Junior Branch group is different, they all work towards common goals and strive to build inclusive communities through Peace Education.

Strong communities are built by active citizens All of these programmes and so much more happen within CISV’s Chapters. CISV has Chapters in over 200 towns and cities worldwide. While each is very different, they are all communities of active global citizens. Chapters are locally organized and open to anyone who would like to join. They are made up of individuals and families and they hold events, run projects and host programmes, all of which contribute towards a more just and peaceful world.

Our last programme training was delivered using some of the tools introduced by Train The Trainer and it made a great impact on the people involved.

Training for excellence CISV invests a great deal of time, effort and money in training. This is because we believe that high quality training for our volunteers means a high quality experience for those who take part in our programmes and chapter based activities. In 2009 we provided training for hundreds of volunteers around the world. We match their enthusiasm and commitment with the skills and knowledge they need to be able to plan and deliver effective and exciting educational experiences. As a demonstration of how highly we value all our volunteer trainers, we have established a certified Train The Trainer (TTT) programme. This contributes to the continuing development of our trainers and also acts as an effective communication pathway for introducing new initiatives into the organization. TTTs are delivered by our International Pool of Trainers, a specialist group of volunteer training professionals. In 2009, 89 of our volunteer trainers completed TTT successfully. Our TTTs take place at our Regional Training Forums, which were held in each of our regions for the first time in 2009.

CISV Guatemala



The impact of training – a personal view For me training and learning are the two key elements in CISV. The creative way in which we teach participants to fully understand the world and each other is amazing and inspiring. I love to be right in the middle of that. The TTT brought me a lot of insights into training methods, but also into the 'things you don't think of', like group development and a positive learning environment. Now, as a trainer of TTTs I hope to bring the same inspiration to future trainers, but I also really like to be inspired myself. My best moments are when I am training and learning at the same time; it makes every experience new and challenging.

Each of our chapters has organized camps where we invite like-minded-organizations and the disadvantaged children they work with to participate. These camps are run by our Junior Branch...we share philosophies with these other organizations and our Juniors learn about the issues they are working to address.

CISV International is a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) in operational relations with UNESCO and holds Participatory Status with the Council of Europe. Along with cooperation, conducting and contributing to research in the field of inter-cultural peace education is one of CISV’s founding goals. As part of our commitment to this work we have developed strong links with Birkbeck College, University of London, Newcastle University and the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. Twelve CISV camps have provided the research material for ‘Dialogue in Intercultural Communities’, a book on communication and active participation in education systems in intercultural settings. The book, due to be published in early 2010, is a collection of essays, edited by Claudio Baraldi of University of Modena e Reggio Emilia. At the local level, our CISV members in our Chapters work closely with other organizations to develop community based projects. Our Mosaic programme and Junior Branches around the world have been particularly effective in finding partner organizations, with which they can share ideas and resources to make a positive difference in their communities.



Mosquito Tactics – making an impact! Launched on the world at AIM 2009, the thought-provoking Mosquito Tactics: A book about Peace Education, was an immediate success! An ambitious project of CISV Sweden, Mosquito Tactics was supported with funding from the Swedish National Commission for UNESCO and the Folke Bernadotte Academy. Mosquito Tactics examines what we mean by peace and the obstacles to achieving it. It explores the theory of structural violence, where issues and injustices such as racism, gender discrimination and poverty must be addressed in order to achieve peace. The book not only educates; it is also an inspiring call to action, showing the reader how they can make an impact! For enquiries about Mosquito Tactics, please contact CISV Sweden.

In 2010 we will concentrate on Diversity and explore what that really means for us as an organization, in our communities and among different nations.

Focussing on Human Rights To celebrate the United Nations International Year of Human Rights Learning, in 2009 we focussed upon Human Rights in all of our programmes. Some themed their entire programme or projects around human rights and social justice, where others ran a human rights awareness activity. The following projects are some great examples.

I believe the Killer Fashion Revolution workshop was an interactive way to approach Human Rights issues through some of the hidden ethical issues of fashion. The participants became more aware of the neglect of Human Rights in the fashion industry and were given the knowledge, skills and attitudes to become more ethical consumers. Participants were also inspired to re-cycle and adapt clothing to expand the life-span of their own wardrobes.

Many of the clothes we wear are related to war, without our even knowing. The idea of the Killer Fashion Revolution was to examine war-related fashion and transform it to create new garments that promote human rights. By exploring Human Rights through fashion, we raise our awareness through something that is part of our daily lives.

The Killer Fashion Revolution was also a part of my Masters Thesis for Aalto University, School of Art and Design. It will also be part of the Amnesty International Human Rights Arts Festival in Maryland USA in 2010.

“Fashion hacktivism for human rights!�

So, how does this work? The first Killer Fashion Revolution workshop was a Mosaic project. Fourteen participants, aged 14 to 30, and four partner organizers spent a weekend together discovering how our every-day fashion relates to war, understanding the complexities of Human Rights and creating ethical clothing designs.

The Junior Branch (JB) in CISV Germany traditionally hosts an educational weekend called NaJuWo. For their 2009 NaJuWo, they chose the theme of ‘Human Rights Education’ to support the CISV focus on Human Rights for the year. The group got exposed to the concept of Human Rights and explored how the idea of human rights came about. They dived into the history of human rights and questioned whether there would be a new draft of the Human Rights Declaration in the future. Through discussions and activities, everyone gained new attitudes, skills and knowledge. We truly believe that this was a great example of how we can use themes to further our educational goals. JB Germany is one example among the many JBs that use themes to explore CISV Peace Education and our four content areas. It is a great opportunity for JBs, Chapters, National Associations, programmes, regions and CISV International to work together in unity under the same educational challenge!

CISV. . . has given me the clear idea that a better world can be built . . . starting from your immediate surroundings

Active CISVers CISV has very much shaped my life, together with my family and Colombian values. It has strengthened my leadership skills and has given me an important scenario to develop them. But overall, it has given me the clear idea that a better world can be built, and that one can always work hard to achieve this; starting from your immediate surroundings, but also in national or global arenas. And – saving the best for last – it gave me the chance to meet my wife; the fascinating Italian, Alice Beccaro (former Youth Meeting Chair)! I am one of many CISVers who has studied International Relations, and am now finishing my MSc. in Development Studies. As CISV gave me the opportunity to become an active citizen, my career really started at the age of 15, when I got acquainted with project management, development, human rights and citizen's participation. I led the International Cooperation Programme for the UK government in Colombia and served as Executive Director of a Human Rights NGO. I currently continue to work in the field of democracy and development, with a new project: the foundation of an NGO that one day will be international. Starting from this year it will be working to strengthen civil society organizations in Colombia: helping them become stronger and organizationally mature, CISV Archive



helping society understand why they are important, and building bridges between them, the Government, and the private sector. I always thought that with the change that came with globalization and the so called ‘information era’, our organization would need to adapt to that new setting. Indeed, we now have more cultural diversity in our cities than in our international camps. I believe that Mosaic will be the strategic programme that will bring all our other programmes together, and that will help CISV be out there in permanent contact with reality, with the problems of our new world, and actively finding new solutions. My vision is for CISV to become one of the top 10 global volunteer organisations, but grown stronger professionally, with larger geographical coverage, and present with deployed teams helping communities struck by violence, poverty or natural disasters. CISV will always be relevant, as we are one of the few organizations that actually has solutions for the major problems that societies will be facing in the future. Juan Carlos Lozano Herrera, Trustee CISV Colombia, former Chair of the International Mosaic Committee

At a Seminar Camp you have participants from all over the world and even though each of us wanted to be represented as an individual, our nation and culture is an important part of our identity. In discussions it could sometimes be hard to be understood or understand each other, because we have such different views due to our different backgrounds. For some, one opinion could be looked upon as just wrong and not an opinion that you disagree with. From this I've learned to put myself in other peoples’ positions and try to understand their reasons for their opinion. I also learned to jump at opportunities and not be scared to make a fool out of myself. If I want to help out in society I shouldn't be scared to do so. I was inspired by everyone at my Seminar Camp. They all mean a lot to me still, and even one year after, many thoughts go to all those good friends I made. They inspired me to do what I'm best at and not to be afraid of being criticised and laughed at it for it. You can make a difference even if it's a small difference or if it means that it will take some time and effort. Kristine Moshuus, CISV Norway

I first became involved with CISV when my friend Hestia Utomo, the founder of CISV Indonesia, asked me to help build up our National Association. I was very active with other youth organizations but Hestia convinced me and another friend, Rose Marie Kartodirjo, that CISV was where we should concentrate our time. I am proud of so much that we have achieved with CISV Indonesia. Helping to build friendship among people and families with different religions, cultures, education and languages - especially because Indonesia is so diverse culturally and religiously. Seeing our Juniors develop their leadership skills and also our parents growing with their organizational skills. And most of all, the togetherness we have among friends with the CISV Spirit. CISV Indonesia feels like a child I have helped to take care of since it was a baby and now I am helping it to grow to be an adult. CISV Indonesia will be 20 years old in 2011 and I am still inspired by CISV to keep it developing and working for our future. Mira Wisendha, CISV Indonesia, President of Cendrawasih Chapter
