About the hosting organization:
Servizio Civile Internazionale (SCI Italia) is the Italian branch of Service Civil International network (SCI), international voluntary movement present in more than 80 countries around the world. For almost 100 years it’s been promoting international voluntary projects on the themes of peace and disarmament, conscientious objection, human rights and international solidarity, sustainable lifestyles, social inclusion and active citizenship. At the base there is a concrete commitment to change situations of inequality, injustice and violation of human rights.
SCI Italia, founded in 1948, is an NGO recognized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Advisory Member of UNESCO and the Council of Europe. It is based in Rome and is supported by several regional and local groups of activists. Regional and local groups deal with training activities and the promotion of volunteering in various Italian regions, supporting the work of the National Secretariat.
In Rome, San Paolo neighborhood, SCI Italia has been carrying out “La Città dell’Utopia” project since 2003, which plays a significant role at local and international level. Perched on the top of a hill near the city center, a little piece of utopian idealism emerges from the concrete surroundings, a place where a better world is imagined and groups of young people, migrants, older residents and students come together in an attempt to make a better and more just city. Members contribute to meeting a demand that they see unfilled in the city – Italian language courses are taught by volunteers, physical fitness and sports activities as well as social programs for psychological support are offered. Not only does La Città dell’Utopia promote sustainability by demonstrating alternative lifestyles through their various social, environmental and political activities but they also provide a home for local food and sustainable consumption markets and host various associations ranging from free bike workshops to solidarity purchasing groups that work directly with local, organic farmers.
