UNV in Action: Volunteerism in the 2030 Agenda
Sustainable development cannot be achieved without people’s engagement in all stages. This important lesson learnt from the Millennium Development Goals is now reflected in the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, which is universal, transformational, holistic and people-centred, and aims to leave no one behind.

Acknowledging that traditional means of implementation need to be complemented by participatory mechanisms that facilitate people’s engagement, the 2030 Agenda explicitly names volunteer groups as actors in their own right among the means of implementation.
