European Year of Volunteering 2011: Part 1

2912 views

2011 is the European Year of Volunteering. This means that volunteering, and the work of volunteers, is being propelled into the European limelight. One fifth of the EU population contributing up to 5% of GDP: that's 100 million European volunteers. Volunteering brings huge benefits to our economy and to society. The European Year is an awareness-raising exercise to foster an environment for volunteering. The Commission is working closely with the EYV2011 Alliance of volunteering organisations, the Member States, other European Institutions, the Council of Europe and the United Nations Volunteers. On the occasion of Italy's official launch event of the European Year of Volunteering taking place in Venice on 01/04/2011, the European Commission's audiovisual service has produced stockshots on a broad variety of volunteering activities from across the EU.
