ABOUT THE 25TH IAVE WORLD VOLUNTEER CONFERENCE

The 25th IAVE World Volunteer Conference aimed to create an environment that encouraged networking, sharing of knowledge, and continuous learning for all those who believe volunteering improves their communities and the lives of those who volunteer and is a strategic asset to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

For the first time in IAVE’s history, Germany hosted the IAVE World Volunteer Conference. The host organization for the 25th IAVE World Volunteer Conference was Volunteer Center Augsburg. They are teamed up with with several local, national and international partners to make this conference a reality.

The conference theme – Our Responsibility for the Global Future – highlighted the collaboration that we believe will bring solutions to the global challenges we face. We see volunteering as a unifying force that enables us to pull together resources and commit the time and effort to bring about positive change in our communities.

The 25th IAVE World Volunteer Conference was designed to:

  • provoke discussion around the current issues volunteering faces at the global level.
  • get fresh, new and creative solutions to the challenges those involved in volunteering face every day.
  • promote active learning from one another, as participants.
  • provide examples of projects, lessons learned and inspiring practices about developing volunteering around the world.
  • lay the groundwork for collaborative relations between the participants.
  • promote the concept of “sustainability” as a way of life.
  • highlight our shared commitment to volunteering.
