4u2 - For you too - Roland Brunner
Invitation: European cooperation on Civil Peace Services
friends working on Projects of Civil Peace Service
Important steps have been made in the recent months concerning the establishment of CPS in many countries as well as on European level. We feel the deep wish and need to develop the cooperation in the field and encourage the development of nonviolent conflict tools by inviting your organisation in taking part in these common efforts.
the annual meeting of the European Network for Civil Peace Services, EN.CPS,
the participating organisations agreed to strenghten their cooperation not
only in sharing information and expertise, but also in the field work with
of the organisations participating in the EN.CPS already have work with
volunteers in conflict and crisis areas. Mainly in Kosovo, there are teams
working on behalf of the Austrian Friedensdienste OFD, the German ForumZFD and
the Swiss Coalition for CPS IG-ZFD. We invite you to strengthen all our
experience and impact by opening up the projects for international cooperation
in the field with deployments, but also in the back office work.
warmly invite you to share with us the projects you are working on as Civil
Peace Services and to open them up to international participation. The cooperation to be developed will depend completely on bilateral or
multilateral agreements with the interested partner organisations. Some
projects may need more volunteers, while others may seek for money or maybe
promotion. Together, we are sure, we can make our work stronger and more
prominent on field level, but also in international and political campaining
for CPS. Please feel free to offer your own projects to any kind of
participation you feel the project may need or to link your organisation up to
some of the existing projects.
first project open to international cooperation is the Swiss based Volunteers
project “KIDS” in Vushtrri/Vucitrn in Kosovo. This project, run by three
volunteers, aims at developing youth activities in this heavily destroyed town.
You may find a description of the project in German with some English
information also on the website www.4u2.ch
the German ForumZFD is in procedure to open up its project work in Kosovo. You
will get information concerning these projects soon.
you feel like joining to this KIDS project or if you have some project of your
own which you would like to offer, please fill in the project information form
on next page, and send it back to Roland Brunner at firstname.lastname@example.org
offer or request will be spread to all organisations participating in the
EN.CPS and you will get in direct contact with answers.
we can make a difference. We are looking forward your offers and invitation.
our very best regards
On behalf of the EN.CPS: Janne Poort - van Eeden, Roland Brunner
