Share your experiences and innovations on volunteering for the SDGs

One billion active volunteers worldwide are already making important contributions across all SDGs. In July 2020, governments and their partners will come together at the Global Technical Meeting on Reimagining Volunteerism for the 2030 Agenda to discuss what we know about the transformative potential of volunteering, and to reflect on how to maximize the impact of volunteering under the 2030 Agenda.

To inform these discussions, we are asking stakeholders to share evidence on their good practices, experiences and innovations through the survey below.

SUBMIT YOUR GOOD PRACTICE BY CLICKING HERE

Examples could include:

  • New technologies to enable more people to volunteer;
  • Projects that use volunteering to empower marginalized groups;
  • Support for informal volunteers through legal advice or networking;
  • Policies that integrate volunteering into broader development efforts;
  • Legislation to protect volunteers or to uphold their rights;
  • New funding and partnership models that sustain volunteering; and
  • Tools that measure the social and economic value of volunteering.

Submissions can be made in all six UN languages. We will select some of your examples to highlight during the meeting in New York in July 2020. Later in 2020, we intend to publish all qualifying case studies on UNV’s online Volunteering Knowledge Portal. For questions or further information, please contact us at GTM2020@unv.org

Please note that the call will close on 30 April 2020.

We are looking for experiences and innovations that are:
