The web documentary “Diary of a camp leader” presented at the Alliance Technical Meeting to 50 voluntary service organizations from 29 countries

The web documentary “Diary of a camp leader” is dedicated to them.
We expect it to be a turning point to 3000 workcamp leaders that will be placed in 2018 to lead workcamps worldwide and further more to 18.000 international volunteers involved in the movement yearly, placed in 1500+ workcamps worldwide.
As a promotional tool, the web documentary “Diary of a camp leader” has become a common tool to all 50 Alliance members. At the Technical Meeting (Brno, Czech Republic, 1-6 March 2018) it was presented to even wider community of 90 International Voluntary Service organisations from approx. 50 countries, all having workcamps as a common tool. This mainly included the members of Alliance’ and its sister networks CCIVS – Coordinating Committee of International Voluntary Services and NVDA -Network for Voluntary Development in Asia.
