  1. Do you know MTV EXIT?

    I personally like when music has some kind of message, as an easy way to show really complicated problems and present solutions to help with it.

    Is there a better way of understanding a problem than listening to good music?

  3. Humans are created by God to be creative. Not to be used.

    Dear friends!

    I would like to thank you for your interest in our conference in the name of the preparations group. We are looking forward to reading your applications and meeting you in person! Because of the curiosity and the need to get prepared together for this conference I would like to invite you to follow our blog on the Invisible Slavery Conference, that will take place less than in two months, from 6. October in St. Gilgen, in Austria. When we decided with the Solidarity Working Group of the Regional Committee to organize a conference on Human Trafficking two years ago, I knew that it is not going to be an easy topic. Please consider these facts for a few seconds:

    • There are 20-30 million people trafficked nowadays and kept in slavery.
    • Half of them are children. 70% of them are women.
    • Human trafficking is the third largest, and fastest growing international crime industry
    • Approximately 80% of the human trafficking is sexual exploitation. (ILO)

  4. Why is Culture a topic to WSCF Europe?

    Hello WSCF Europe people!

    Myself as part of the ERC on this term (2011-2013) were part of an interesting analysis started by our predecessors. The partial outcome of it is what I would like to share with you. I am saying partial because the other part is left here for us, friends of WSCF-E- to figure it out.

  6. Invisible Slavery Blog- Welcome!

    Dear Friends

    This is the first blogpost to welcome you to our upcoming Invisible Slavery conference blog. We will be having posts every week written by the prepcom members, who will be introducing themselves.  If you are not aware, the upcoming WSCF-E conference is on the very real and very emotional topic of human trafficking, which is shamefully common in Europe and indeed the world. We will be looking at sex trafficking, forced labour and why this happens in our society, as well as coming up with positive ways to inspire participants to engage and reflect on the subject matter.  Our call for participants is here.

    We look forward to hearing from SCM members and friends.

    James Jackson (UK), is a member of the conference’s preparatory committee.

     

    “Invisible Slavery: Human Trafficking in Europe” conference was sponsored by European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe.

  9. Central & Eastern European SCM Training

    On 14th of September around 15 young people gathered in Białystok, Poland, for an annual CESR capacity building training. The small city near the Belorussian borders is the centre of Polish Orthodox Christians and their youth movement, which is spread over the whole country. A group of young people from Polish Orthodox SCM, headed by Marta Całpińska, hosted a very colorful spectrum of nationalities: from Macedonian and Hungarian through Slovak, Czech and Polish to German, Belarusian and Finnish. The whole seminary was only a weekend event, but the contacts from there are to be maintained for many more weeks, or maybe years.

  10. Inspired…?

    Hello! I have never written a blog before in my life but thought I would give it a go. As you are probably aware, London hosted the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games this summer. Living just outside London, I could not help feeling part of the celebration that was London 2012! With banners, posters and bunting dotted around towns and cities across the UK, there was definitely a celebratory atmosphere.
