We’re proud of our wide-ranging North American collaborations.

Long-standing collaborations

International Coalition of Sites of Conscience

We have a strategic partnership with the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience (ICSC). We’ve placed student interns at several ICSC member sites, including Preservation Virginia’s Scotchtown in the USA. Students actively promote social justice and a universal culture of human rights. They work to:

  • empower marginalised communities
  • counter hate speech and violent extremism
  • preserve the memory of victims of human rights violations
