70 online volunteers have contributed extensively, over the course of several months, to the Peace Bag for EuroMed Youth toolkit, drafting, reviewing and translating the 191 page publication into 12 languages, as well as creating the layout and a web version. The team was awarded the Online Volunteering Award 2011 for this exceptional engagement.
Our UNV Annual Report 2011, "Volunteering for our Future," is about sustainable peace and development: meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It lifts people out of poverty, while at the same time protecting the natural systems that support economic growth.
Volunteerism contributes to sustainable development by engaging people at all levels of society to bring about transformational change in communities.
