The European Volunteer Centre organises a webinar to identify what are the specificities of volunteering in the new reality.
The Covid-19 has changed some aspects of our life and it will probably change the way we interact with each other. However, the European Volunteer Centre is confident that citizens will once again be able to engage as volunteers in the framework of event organization and delivery in a variety of contexts and for a wide range of causes.
To identify what are the specificities of volunteering in large events in the recovery phase from the COVID19 crisis and longer term, CEV organizes the webinar ‘Volunteering in Events’ on 19 June. The webinar will present a toolkit which will reflect the new reality in which we find ourselves and will include ideas for recruiting & managing volunteers in such a way as to and provide the biggest added value and safety for the success of the event, the wider community and the volunteers themselves.
The toolkit will also include suggestions about how volunteering in events can best lead to longer term volunteering for those who are interested to further contribute as a volunteer in other contexts as well as how to maintain solidarity as a basic concept central to volunteering in events.
Participants will learn how the well-being of volunteers in events can be protected and how the question of their skills development can be best approached. The motivation of volunteers in events will also be discussed and greater understanding about this reached in order to improve support and value-added for all.
The webinar ‘Volunteering in Events’ will replace the Capacity Building LEVEL ‘Large Events: Volunteering, Empowerment and Learning’, cancelled due to Covid-19 outbreak.
