STC Int'l Forum 18-20 November Antwerp, Belgium (please forward)

     Dear Serve the City leaders and friends

In squats and favelas, townships and slums, hospitals and shelters, we are united in our desire to serve: the homeless, asylum seekers, the elderly, the disabled, children in need, victims of abuse. We know them by their needs. What if we knew them by name?
In 2005, 72 volunteers spent a week serving the poor in Brussels, Belgium. There was city-wide publicity, great projects, and inspiring moments. But no thought of starting an organization, much less a global movement. Now, in 2012 Serve the City is starting or active in more than 72 cities - and you are a part of it!
From Tallinn to Cape Town, from Montevideo to Amsterdam, from Dublin to Baltimore, inspiring stories of serving are being told, and all with the same theme: many people doing small things together makes a big difference.
Now as we edge closer to our 10th birthday we have a Serve the City goal that we can only achieve together: 100 cities in 10 years.
New cities currently preparing to start Serve the City include Copenhagen, Mexico City, and Shanghai. But what about Delhi? What about Kinshasa? What about Dubai? What about Rome? 
And what about your city? If you are leading Serve the City already you no doubt have some exciting things to share that could help others. And you probably have some questions, or the desire to be more effective.
That's why we organize an annual International Forum - to come together, to tell stories, to share best practices, to dream and plan. Join us 18-20 November in Antwerp, Belgium and let's cross the line together!
