SDG 17: Partnerships for the goals

Around the world, people volunteer in different ways to achieve diverse impacts, both planned and unplanned. Most volunteering takes place through informal engagement between individuals, with only an estimated 30 per cent of volunteering taking place formally, through organizations. Much of this volunteerism – both informal and formal – takes place at the community level.

Le Rapport sur l'état du volontariat dans le monde de 2018 Le fi l qui nous relie est une publication phare des Nations Unies qui présente de nouvelles données sur le rôle du volontariat dans le renforcement de la résilience des communautés. Il constate que les communautés apprécient le volontariat car il leur permet de créer des stratégies collectives pour faire face à divers défi s économiques, sociaux et environnementaux. Dans le même temps, à moins d’être soutenu de manière appropriée par des acteurs plus larges, le volontariat peut être exclusif et contraignant pour certains groupes.
