IJBC 2010 BALI, INDONESIA IJBC was held from July 29 to August 2 and it rocked, Learned a lot! From impact to resources, everything about IJB! Met really cool people from the different committees & departments in CISV. We also met Jeremy Gilley, founder of Peace One Day virtually through a skype meeting. He shared a few stories and answered a few questions. His key to success? Believe in what you are doing and stay motivated! Worked – on Building Blocks which were - JB what it is and how we impact, JB within, Building Educational Content, The leaders within JB, En route & new projects!

The new IJB Team re-structuring (on trial-mode) In IJBC we decided to change things up a bit in the IJB team and we re-structured our team. Our team now works on 11 groups of tasks, grouped into 3 areas, as well as tasks that the team do together, with the IJRs. Check out each of the Area Pages on jbpedia to find out more about their specific tasks and goals.

One Day, One Dance A Peace Day Global Activity

The way it started was after skyping with Jeremy Gilley at IJBC - he mentioned One Day One Dance, and it could be something really cool that IJB takes part in. During a project group, about 10 participants at IJBC made some decisions so that all guys could get started! The Activity was beyond a great success and we got a large number of JBs participating. It was a really inspiring act of Active Global Citizenship!! Check out the awesome Mash-Up video of all the dances done in all JBs. Thanks to all the JBs all over the world in support and dancing for Peace One Day!

In the APJB region we’ve started our Regional Feel Activity: This project started from this year within APJB and you can see our goal from the name. As for July-September we had "JB Blue BBQ" where JB get together and dress up in blue, and share a meal! For next activity we have "Photo Competition" where JBers take a crazy photo somehow incorporating a Tooth brush, and the best photos will be included in the APJB wave. We are glad to announce that we finally have our year plan! Our 3 priorities are: Communication, Regional/Neighborhood WS Improvement, and IJB Involvement. In addition, our year theme is "Community within IJB, APJB and local JBs"

A lot has been going on in EJB the past 6 months since EJB has passed. We finished up with their Year plan the one they will be working on until next EJBM! We also applied for a grant from the European Youth Forum that if we hopefully get will lower the cost of EJBM which will make it more accessible for people! Also Francisco Attended the Italian youth forum where he presented CISV to a number of other organizations.. We have also had 2 great workshops that were run BeNeLux and Arabian Nights!

ARMM written by the ARMM team What has happened since ARMM and IJBC is that we now have elected 3 new members for the ARM Team, now we have Pedro Murta and Saris Velez as Senior Team Members and Grace Vottero and Ana Cueva as Junior team members. There has been a change on ARM structure, what used to be our NoDs are called Neighborhoods now since they are geographically near but not all of them have the same needs. The new NoDs are a group of ARM Junior Branches that have the same needs and that get together to help each other by developing workshops. We have created a ARM Team Facebook page so please like us and also we are trying to bring to people into the New ARM List so it would be awesome for you guys to join!

• Challenge Accepted With the aim of making everyone in IJB feel like more of an international community a few juniors have come up with this cool activity wherein JBs challenge each other to do things. The way it works is a country in each region (Asia-Pacific, Europe or the Americas) has been given the task of challenging a country in the other regions to a task. A few challenges have already been done one was that JB Mexico challenged JB Hungary and JB Philippines to the challenge of: 4 people, 16 hamburgers, in less than 4:05.0 minutes. Now JB Sweden, JB Israel, & JB Denmark have a challenge in the works!
