Are you interested in International Affairs ? QUNO Summer School 2017

Rorie Nazareth

 Applications for the 2017 QUNO Summer School are being accepted until 15 March 2017. 

This program introduces young people during twelve summer days (2-14 July) in Geneva to the work of the United Nations, as seen through the programme areas of QUNO.     

Who can apply?  Those with an active interest in international affairs, as well as the desire to share understanding with others. Fluent English is essential. Participants’ ages range from 20 – 26. Quakers are usually in the majority, although anyone may apply. We welcome applications from anywhere in the world. Applicants from outside the EU/Switzerland will need a visa, and QUNO assists with visa applications, although we are unable to guarantee success.

The participation fee for the Summer School is £630, which goes towards the costs of accommodation, programme and meals. Travel costs to Geneva and spending money are not included in this fee. Participants will be required to pay a deposit of £100 on acceptance of a place on the Summer School.

Quaker refugee survey launched: The Quaker Asylum and Refugee Network (QARN) and Quaker Council for European Affairs (QCEA) are collecting information from friends engaged with refugees and asylum seekers.

Open Places Available at the FWCC EMES Annual Meeting 4-7.6.2015

Rorie Nazareth

The Annual Meeting is normally for nominated Representatives from Yearly or Monthly Meetings and organisations and worship groups in our Section.  However, this is going to be a special year, as we shall be joined by members of the Central Executive Committee of FWCC. Therefore we are offering open places to Friends who might like to take part in the Meeting and come and meet Friends from the other Sections: Africa, Asia West Pacific and Americas. 

Theme
Pilgrims’ Progress – from Kabarak to Cusco (via Busan and Birmingham!)
There are references in the theme to the World Conference of Friends, which took place in Kabarak, Kenya, in 2012, and resulted in a call to Peace and Ecojustice, to the World Council of Churches’ invitation to Pilgrimages of Justice and Peace, which arose from its General Assembly in Busan in 2013, and to the next meeting of FWCC International Representatives, which will take place in Cusco, Peru’, from 19th to 27th January 2016, on the theme of Living the Transformation: Creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of God’s children (Romans 8:19)
The planning group offers these Queries on the Theme for Friends to explore within their Meetings in preparation for the Annual Meeting.

Programme
The Meeting will start on Thursday 4th June 2015 with the evening meal at 18:15 hrs – please arrive from 4pm onwards – and end with lunch at 13:00 on Sunday 7th June 2015.
