Initiative for a Culture of Peace
The Avalon Project – Initiative for a Culture of Peace is an educational and activist NGO which aims at the construction of a global culture based on non-violence, social justice and a deep respect for the planetary Community of Life and the Earth.
It was born in Spain, receiving the official support of Professor Federico Mayor Zaragoza, Director-General of UNESCO between 1987 and 1999.
The Avalon Project is an Earth Charter International Affiliate.
Volunteer training course
No. This course is NOT mandatory for Avalon volunteering, although we highly recommend that it be done. Firstly, because it will allow you to know in detail where you get into, what our fundamental ideas are and how we work. And, secondly, because you will be able to join the group more quickly, since in the tasks that are requested in its 5 sessions you will get in contact with other volunteers, as well as with the people who lead the course of Avalon.
Yes, of course. Avalon's borders were never solid, so there have always been people who came and went to regulate their distance and their involvement according to their circumstances. On the other hand, perhaps you simply want to acquire new knowledge and only in the end you may, or may not, be interested in being part of the Avalon tribe. That decision will always be in your hands.
