Marking the International Year of Volunteers 10th anniversary

Ideas, Opportunities and Tools for stakeholders’ action


In celebrating iyv 10
In celebrating IYV+10…

We celebrate volunteering as an expression of our common humanity and as a means of building mutual respect, understanding, trust, solidarity and reciprocity.

We embrace volunteering as universal and inclusive, and recognize volunteering in its diversity, as well as the purpose that sustains it: a firm belief in the values of equality, solidarity, civic engagement as well as individual and collective freedoms.

From the Vision statement drafted at the consultative stakeholders meeting in October 2009

Volunteering in the future
Volunteering in the future

We envisage societies that value, recognize and encourage volunteering as integral to local, national and international plans and priorities.

We foresee a future in which all individuals embrace a shared commitment to voluntarily contribute, within their capacity, to the pursuit of the common good and to the ideals of harmony and peace…

We call upon all leaders in Governments, volunteer involving organizations, civil society, private sector, non-governmental organizations, the United Nations system and from communities to recognize and celebrate the achievements of volunteers by actively engaging in the marking of IYV+10.
