SCI’s mission is to promote a culture of peace. In order to achieve our mission, we work on different topics and issues through our branches and always keeping the local and global perspective in mind. The themes highlighted on the website are directly tied to different projects, campaigns and programmes we have run on an international level during the past few years.

Today climate change is for us what World War I was to Pierre Ceresole in the early 20th century: it presents a growing threat to peace, nonviolence and human rights. This is why SCI branches and activists are working towards the new fossil fuel free, climate resilient future.


SCI believes that each human being has to be the core of governmental policies before any economic or political evaluation. According to that, SCI promotes freedom of movement and right to citizenship at global level, in particular through its Building Bridges programme.

Gender inequalities often result in the marginalisation and discrimination of people with non-normative gender and/or sexuality from childhood on, and connected stereotypes and prejudices influence everyday life experiences, often leading to exclusion. SCI sees this as violence and is trying to address it, namely through its Gendered Realities project and thanks to its Gender Blenders working group.
