End production: 26/01/2011
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 1 September 2011, the European Year of Volunteering Tour will arrive in Warsaw. An event will take place on this occasion on Defilad Square. Part 3 of this series of video stockshots produced by the European Commission's audiovisual service is being released to illustrate this event and the European Year of Volunteering in general.
