Network Europeo per il volontariato sociale
European Network for social volunteering

Dear friends, we’re happy to spread this call for participants in the frame of an international project InformaGiovani is partner of.


Athens, 26, 27, 28/09/2011
Within the Project
“Volunteering: Action for active citizenship" (VACi)
The project “Volunteering: Action for active citizenship" (VACi)

Ahead of the European Year of Volunteering 2011, European citizens organizations should enhance the methodological knowledge to set-up, develop and materialize European wide volunteer projects integrating intercultural learning and European identity promotion. The aim of such projects, apart from contributing to social, environmental and human needs at a European wide level, they evidently promote volunteering itself, and have a multiplicator effect. In such a way, citizens that participate in such European wide volunteer projects are challenged by the fact that they belong to a European culture together with their local culture which makes them realize that they are part of a wider cultural heritage, the European cultural heritage that respects cultural diversity, human rights, is tolerant, democratic and cosmopolitan.
The project is jointly organized by SCI Hellas (Greece), InformaGiovani (Italy), DeAmiciatia (Spain) and Association Realization (Croatia) with the support of the Europe for Citizens programme of the European Union.
The project comprises of three activities, a conference and two trainings: (a) a Conference under the title "All about volunteering", (b) a training entitled "Project Management: Realizing ideas" and (c) a training entitled "Intercultural learning: Beyond tolerance". The project’s activities will use the non-formal education methodology (active contribution of the participants, games, experience-sharing e.tc.). The participants will act as multipliers concerning the themes of the trainings to their local organizations. The aim of the trainings is to create a ‘one-day introduction training’ including a ‘tool-kit’ both in print and electronic format on project management and intercultural learning. The principal contribution of this project to the European dimension is the development of a common methodological approach for Citizens Organisations necessary for the success of the events foreseen for the forthcoming European Volunteering Year 2011 all over Europe.
