how we make a difference

UNV Strategic Framework 2014-2017
The current UNV Strategic Framework is dated from 2014-2017 and concentrates on five themes: access to basic social services, community resilience for environment and disaster risk reduction, peacebuilding, youth, and national capacity development through volunteer themes.
2016 Partnerships Forum
13/14 October 2016 - Bonn, Germany
Under the theme Revitalizing Partnerships: Volunteerism for the Sustainable Development Goals, the Forum will aim to showcase the added value of UNV and volunteerism for peace and development and their contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals, building on UNV’s previous and current work.
UNV and the private sector
Through its alliances with multi-national companies and business networks, UNV has been applying corporate volunteering for decades to meet the talent needs of the United Nations. Growing numbers of private sector partners are joining forces with UNV through onsite and online corporate volunteering and by backing UNV projects and programmes.
