STC INTERNATIONAL FORUM | 21-23 October, 2021

Every year from around the world we gather together to celebrate, resolve, and learn from everyone and anyone involved with STC. You are invited to our 2021 International Forum!

What does it mean to Serve Now? How do we Serve Now? Who do we Serve Now?

WHY DO WE SERVE NOW?

We will explore, learn, and take action on each of these questions and much more during our 2021 International Forum!

The 2021 Forum will be available online and in-person in Paris, France. Global online content will come from Paris, and online welcome, gathering, and network content local to Asia/Oceania and the Americas will be hosted in Manila, Philippines and Detroit, Michigan, USA respectively. Although planning may be difficult depending on local COVID-19 restrictions, take a leap and save the date, you can always join us online!

Workshops

This year’s workshops are in three different styles. A standard expert workshop in two parts about neighborhood transformation. A “Marketplace” with a “pop-in, pop-out” format and four options to answer the question “How do you do?”. And lastly, three workshops based on our shared social concerns.

Neighborhood Transformation

This is a single topic workshop where we will learn from neighborhood transformation experts and how you can SERVE NOW to make meaningful and long-term impact in your neighborhoods. This is a two-part workshop, part 1 will be available twice on Friday, and part 2 will be available twice on Saturday.

STC "How do you do?" Marketplace

The marketplace is your time to learn from STC leaders and volunteers about unique solutions to address volunteerism with our STC values in action. The marketplace will be available three times, in four “pop-in, pop-out” rooms, twice on Friday and once on Saturday. Check back soon for details on the topics.

Shared Social Concerns

Join our Shared Social Concerns team to discuss and interact with ideas and concerns that are too big for any single person or city to address. This workshop will be presented twice on Saturday with three different topics to choose from. Specific topics will be provided here as soon as they are confirmed!
