Event description

Description

With nearly 1 billion people throughout the world giving up their time for free to support their community, volunteering can be considered a central activity of our society. Yet measurement of its social impact is often neglected. The capacity building conference Beyond volunteering: Measuring the social impact seeks to address this issue and raise awareness of how best to assess the value of volunteering.

The event will be held on the 23 March from 9.30 till 14.30 in the European Parliament Office at The Tun, 4 Jackson’s Entry, Holyrood Road Edinburgh EH8 8PJ.

This event is the culmination of a three year campaign carried out by Volonteurope with the support of the Volonteurope Measuring Impact Working Group. The campaign has shared best practice and carried out research in order to gather evidence for the value of volunteering and measure its social impact which will help to raise the profile and quality of impact measurement across Europe with the final aim to develop universal indicators.

During the conference The Volonteurope Measuring Impact Working Group will present its policy paper outlining the results of this research. They will be joined by expert speakers who will discuss the work that they do within this important field.

Our speakers will be announced soon.

The event will be followed by a networking lunch.

Come along and discuss the ways in which we can work together to ensure that the value of volunteering is fully recognised in our society.
