This year is the 70th anniversary of the first KVT workcamp organised in Finnish Lapland and next year it will be 70 years since the establishment of KVT, SCI's Finnish Branch! Anniversaries bring various kinds of programme and sneak peeks to KVT’s history! The very first workcamp started in the village of Hirvasvaara (near by Salla) on the 15th of June 1946.

We are back with more Building Bridges updates for you!

The international Building Bridges seminar will start this weekend, taking place from from 11th to 17th June in Geneva, Switzerland. The seminar is organised by SCI's “Building Bridges” informal working group and is aimed at training volunteers that are active or interested in projects regarding asylum seekers or those seeking refuge.

It's here! The report that gives you an overview of what SCI has been up to the past year, with reports, volunteer stories, photos and videos from branches, groups, working groups, international bodies and meetings, our latest publication is bursting with info. This year, the format of the report is a bit different compared to the traditional style we normally use, we hope that you enjoy this dynamic and interactive version.

This morning, we had the pleasure of meeting with Heinz Gabathuler, the Archives Coordinator, to discuss the future of the archiving. With a large amount of space being taken up by paper documents at the SCI International Archives and with the increase in the number of documents and publications being created and published online, the switch to digital archiving seems to be a necessary step in ensuring the preservation of SCI history.
