In view of the launch of the European Volunteer Measurement Project, led by the Johns Hopkins University, a kick-off training session will be organised by the project partners in correlation with the CEV Symposium in Tallinn, on Friday 6th May 2011, from 09.00 to 13.00:

 

We have the opportunity for the first time now to know for sure how many European volunteers there are in every country, who they are, what they do, and what they contribute to the economy.

We now have all we need to make it happen: The ILO approved a Manual to produce globally comparable statistics on volunteer work, preparatory funding from the Italian banking foundations has been provided, and there is interest from the European institutions in seeing the Manual implemented in Europe. In Tallinn, during the opening panel session of the CEV Symposium, and in a kick-off training session that will take place on Friday 6th May, Lester Salamon from Johns Hopkins University will explain in detail how the new ILO Manual works and what we can expect to get by seeing it implemented. Join JHU, CEV and SPES in a major 2011 collaborative effort to convince the EU governments that comparable statistics on volunteering is an essential foundation of good policy for volunteering. (Preliminary registration required through the CEV Symposium registration form; no participation fees)
