The turmoil in Western societies around the year 1968, marked by students' revolts and
opposition against US warfare in Vietnam, also left its traces on the SCI movement.
During Easter holidays in 1969, West European and the US branches organised a
Seminar that took place in Uddel, The Netherlands, under the then quite fashionable motto
"The Social and Political Implications of Voluntary Service".
