1. Marking the10th Anniversary of the International Year of Volunteers

2. 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.

13. EYV 2011 & IYV+10 Working Together 2011 is definitely a year for volunteers. As organizations worldwide celebrate the tenth anniversary of IYV, the European Union designated 2011 as the European Year of Volunteering, following an extensive lobby process from a growing number of European networks that form the EYV 2011 Alliance. This common focus poses an invaluable opportunity to explore synergies and collective initiatives to promote and recognize volunteerism throughout the year. EYV 2011 and IYV+10 provide an opportunity for engagement with both the EU and UN policy debates about volunteering and to celebrate and promote volunteering in all its forms through different governmental and non-governmental structures. The EU and the UN have a history of working together to promote volunteering through a partnership between UNV and the European Commission —the two institutions responsible for IYV+10 and EYV. Both initiatives aim to involve all levels of civil society: regional, national and local. In this way, the ownership of both initiatives should remain with the volunteers and the volunteer organizations.
