Developing Volunteering and the Student Movement
13 October 2021
09:00—10:30
Throughout the world, the volunteering movement is continuing to develop, and is covering an increasingly wide scope. It is gaining new supporters — particularly among young people — and is one of the main manifestations of people becoming involved in society. Key projects are being implemented by volunteers across a wide range of areas. These include protecting natural resources, helping those in need, and running educational projects and programmes aimed at improving financial and digital literacy among the older generation. According to international experts, girls and women account for 60–70% of all people involved in these initiatives. The growing role of the student and volunteering movement, along with the support offered to it by parliaments and governments, are helping to address a number of social issues.

What effective practices exist for supporting girls’ initiatives and projects at educational institutions? Could volunteering become an essential part of a girl’s professional growth? What are the best girls’ volunteering initiatives around the world, and what is the potential to adopt them more widely?
