European Year of Volunteering 2011: Part 2

834 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. A conference that will look at the world of volunteering through the eyes of the individual volunteer will be held in Brussels on 23 and 24 May 2011. The conference will also address topics that are of the interest to the individual. On this occasion, the Audiovisual Service of the EC distributes Part 2 of the stockshots on volunteering.
