Ever since the foundation of SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL in 1994, the International SAMARITAN Forum regularly takes place in various locations.
The Forum brings together European Samaritans and people from third organisations with similar goals to discuss current issues in their fields of activity. While the first six events with a total of more than 2,500 participants took up issues from rescue services and civil protection, the 7th SAMARITAN Forum in Berlin in 2013 focused on volunteering under the title AVEC – Active Volunteering for a European Civil Society.
The SAMARITAN Forum 2015 will take place from 28-29 August 2015 and will be hosted by our South Tyrolean member organisation White Cross in Bolzano. Besides workshops and trainings focusing on current developments and innovations in first aid and rescue services, the expected 200 participants from 10 countries will also commemorate the 50th anniversary of the host organisation!
