SCI also works in favour of the promotion of peace through international structures such as UNESCO, Council of Europe, Committee of Coordination of the International Voluntary Service (CCIVS) and Youth Forum of European Communities. In both UNESCO and the Council of Europe SCI holds a consultative status. In 1987 SCI received the title of "Messenger of peace" from the General Secretary of the United Nations in recognition of SCI’s efforts to promote peace and international understanding and for activities developed during the International year of Peace in 1985.
