It brings together around 60 individual organizations. They meet at work meetings at least twice a year and carry out further training for their volunteer and full-time employees. As the organization of international workcamps is at the very center of the work, we want to celebrate the 100th anniversary.

Study Theme: 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the international voluntary movement. In 1920, the first international workcamp took place in France where volunteers of different nations that fought each other met to rebuild not only a village, but to also restore international friendship. This year we want to celebrate this important moment with a conference in Berlin taking place 25th-28th of November. It is central to also give youngsters the possibility to help organizing the conference and to have the spirit of workcamps at the place.
