Servas, die IdeeSERVAS is a worldwide peace organization that tries to create a better understanding through personal contacts among the peoples of the world.
- Would you like to visit foreign countries and participate in the everyday life of the people there?
- Do you want people from other countries to participate in your life for a short time?
- Do you want to overcome your prejudices about other people?
- Do you think peace is possible when everyone really wants it?
Peace, understanding, tolerance and social justice - these are the values to achieve the SERVAS at international level aims by promoting contacts between humans.
Trust and tolerance , resulting from mutual knowledge of the lifestyle and way of thinking of other people, are the basis for obtaining peace.
Our goal is to reduce prejudice between peoples through interpersonal contacts, to gain a better understanding of the mutual problems and thereby to contribute to (world) peace.
People who have learned to respect conflicting opinions through contacts with other peoples will not take a rejection or even a hostile attitude in the face of an apparently unexplainable reaction from another person. In the case of emerging confrontations, they will be looking for further motives to understand the problems.
SERVAS therefore tries to bring people of different origins and attitudes, different beliefs and different skin color into their home so that they can get to know each other.
SERVAS - History
SERVAS was founded in 1949 by a group of students in Denmark and soon spread all over the world. The original name of the organization was Open Door System of Work, Study and Travel.
It was later called SERVAS, which means "service" in Esperanto and expresses the idea of service to a worldwide understanding of the world.
Since 1972, SERVAS INTERNATIONAL is an internationally recognized organization based in Switzerland. The objectives were formulated in the Articles of Association as follows:
SERVAS INTERNATIONAL is an international, non-governmental federation of NATIONAL SERVASGROUPS, establishing a system of hosts and travelers to help build worldpeace, goodwill and understanding by providing opportunities for deeper, more personal contacts with people of other cultures and backgrounds.
