Long-term International Volunteer Statement
From 28th of November 2011 until 1st of December 2011 Silesian Diaconia, a non governmental organization, organized the international seminar called „Privilege – yes or
no?“ in the Czech Republic, in Malenovice. The aim of the international seminar called „Privilege – yes or no?" was to promote equal opportunity and mobility of young people to participate in long-term international voluntarism, particularly between EU and non- EU countries. The participants of the seminar were coordinators, volunteers, former volunteers, supervisors, and mentors active in the international voluntary service field from ten different countries (Denmark, Italy, Germany, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Ukraine, Belarus, Poland and Palestine). Participants shared their different authentic experiences within the context of international volunteering which resulted in the unanimous support of the attached statement.
