The Role of Volunteering in Developing a Healthy and Balanced Society
26 May 2018
10:00—11:15

2018 — the Year of the Volunteer — sets out ambitious goals for organizers of volunteer organizations. With millions of people getting involved in volunteering, one of the main challenges is to create a culture around it, so that volunteering would become an organic part of people’s lives in Russia. If achieved, it could lead to significant growth in the numbers of volunteers. Volunteering is a unique vocation that provides opportunities for involvement in almost every sphere of human activity. Modern volunteering has no limitations in regards to the field of activity or the age of those who seek to help, and new forms of volunteering are emerging based on real-life needs. What skills and qualities can volunteers develop as a result of their activities? What are some of the volunteering projects globally where participants can make a contribution to the development of a healthy society? What should regional support for volunteers look like? What major events will take place in Russia in the coming years to stimulate the development of volunteering initiatives? How is international volunteering cooperation developing? How is the volunteering system in Russia structured and how efficiently is volunteering experience accumulated and shared?
