ABOUT THE
CONFERENCE

The goal of the conference was to significantly advance both the discussion and the practice of corporate volunteering in Europe, engaging key thought leaders as well as executives and managers of companies committed to developing strong, high impact volunteer efforts. The conference focused on corporate partnerships — with NGOs, with community and public sector organizations, and with UN agencies as well as company-to company collaborations. The health and strength of these partnerships is key to impactful corporate volunteering.

The 2017 conference was built on the conversations and learning that took place at the European Conference on Corporate Volunteering held in Zurich in September 2015, as well as the Forum: Corporate Volunteering Response to the Refugee Challenge held in Berlin in May 2016.

CONFERENCE PROGRAM

The conference format was a mix of plenary sessions and forums. Plenaries are designed to present big ideas and provide inspiration. Forums are breakout sessions where participants share projects, partnership insights and best practices.  The purpose of the forums is to stimulate a lively discussion to help shape our thinking and improve our own practices.
