Ready to represent SCI at the European Volunteering Forum?

Posted by projects on Aug 18

The SALTO South East Europe Resource Centre will be organising a European Volunteering Forum in Maribor, Slovenia, from 10 – 14 October and it would be great to have an SCI representative there! The forum will bring together around 50 participants from organisations that are actively involved in transnational volunteering - EVS as well as other programmes - coming from all over Europe and its neighbouring regions.

European Volunteering Forum

The European Volunteering Forum wants to offer the opportunity to celebrate and promote the impact of long-term transnational volunteering on people, organisations and communities, learn from different examples of practice in the field, identify current challenges, define future perspectives and encourage networking across Europe and beyond.

During the Forum, a »Volunteering Library« will be organised, where participants will have the possibility to speak more directly to the representatives of the different programmes, ex-volunteers etc. to explore the possibilities they offer.  SALTO has expressed specifically that they would very much like to have someone there who could give more information about SCI during this session!

The specific OBJECTIVES of the Forum are to:

  • Raise the visibility of the relevance of transnational volunteering in Europe and its neighboring regions
  • Discuss main benefits and challenges of transnational volunteering
  • Share experiences and examples of practice
  • Develop perspectives for the future of transnational volunteering
  • Encourage networking among the participants
  • Celebrate 20 years of EVS

Participants should:

  • live in a Programme Country or a Neighbouring Partner Country of the Erasmus+ programme (*)
  • be actively involved (as coordinators, supervisors, mentors etc.) in transnational volunteering programmes implemented by their organisation or institution (EVS or other)
  • have enough experience with transnational volunteering to share and discuss with the other participants
  • be motivated and able to stay for the full duration of the forum.
  • be able to actively participate in the programme in English.
  • be able to represent SCI and share information about what we do!

You can read the full call and application process on the SALTO website.

Full board and lodging during the Forum will be provided and your travel costs will be reimbursed by the organisers.

Deadline: If you would like to attend on behalf of SCI please send your applications to projects@sci.ngo till 4th September!
