International Volunteer Day - 5 December
The International Volunteer Day for Social and Economic Development
(IVD), established by the UN General Assembly and commemorated on 5 December
every year, shines a light on what volunteers and volunteer-involving
organisations achieve for peace and sustainable development. It is an opportunity
to celebrate and recognise volunteerism in all its facets. This year the theme
is Young, Global, Active. The focus
is on the contribution of youth.
As part of the celebrations, Volunteering SA&NT is supporting a
Youth Volunteer Forum at Parliament House, hosted by The Hon Tony Piccolo, MP,
Minister for Volunteers. It will be attended by young volunteers across the State. The theme of
the Forum is: Volunteering - does it give
you an edge?
Volunteering Strategy for South Australia
Recommendations from the forum will help inform the development of a
Volunteering Strategy for South Australia.
The strategy will set a vision for volunteering in this State. It will
be spearheaded by Volunteering SA&NT, Business SA, the Local Government
Association and the State Government. more
