We provide a range of unique, educational group activities, which develop cross-cultural understanding in children, youth and adults from around the world. By encouraging respect for cultural differences and the development of self-awareness, CISV empowers each participant to incorporate these values into their lives as they become global citizens and strive for a more peaceful world.
Our work focuses on the following key areas:
- We provide opportunities for individuals to learn by experience to live amicably with others irrespective of cultural background.
- We contribute through research to a science of international relations and non-violent conflict resolution.
- We cooperate with other organizations having similar purposes.
- We inspire people of all ages to strive for a more just and peaceful world.
