GREAT in corporation with the Rectorat of Slamet Riyadi University, Surakarta will hold an International Voluntary Service Seminar on 15th February 2017 in the campus.
Theme: Non Formal Learning through nternational Voluntary Service
Background and Aims
IVS aims to pursue peace and be the catalyst for change within individuals and society, to help breakdown prejudices and stereotypes in a world of mutual respect and understanding. It strengthens local and global civil society and promotes active participation and shared learning. IVS gives people the possibility to participate as an active member of society and work on a task which can benefit a community. Volunteers learn that through their active participation in IVS projects they can create change, furthermore, they experience enhanced self-confidence and strengthened personal competences, as it is defined in the White Paper on IVS “Global Strategies for Global Challenges” by CCIVS, 2011.
This is in line with GREAT vision which is “young generation is the agent of change toward global friendship and peace”. Along with this vision, we believe GREAT also contributes to Indonesia in preparing young people in facing Asean Economic Community. And last but not least, we definitely support the global effort in achieving Sustainable Development Goals, especially number 4 stated “ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning”.
Seat reservation can only be made by contacting the university management directly.
