Volunteering in Europe: More than a challenge!

5 October 2017 - 6 October 2017
Vienna, Austria

Participants from Austria and across Europe representing volunteering organisations, political and administrative authorities and academia will gather to exchange on current activities and initiatives in the voluntary sector, to focus on common developments of volunteering and to elaborate a common point of view towards future challenges as well as to consider new strategies for volunteering.

The Conference encompasses three panels; two are scheduled to take place on 5th and one on 6th October 2017. Each panel will be organised in a different way in order to involve the audience and have a more interactive dialog. The audience will also have the opportunity to convey questions either in advance or during the presentations by means of the mobile application (Conference APP).

Themes of the panels:

  • Volunteering, Employment and Employability
  • Full time voluntary service
  • New trends and profiles of volunteers for the next decade



Organization: Austrian Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection in collaboration with the European Volunteer Centre (CEV)
