4th April online meeting: Together towards more inclusive volunteering

  • Mon 4th April 2022 at 14.30–16.00 EET (13.30–15.00 CET)
  • In Zoom (we will send the link to those who sign up)

The European Solidarity Corps offers inspiring volunteering opportunities for young people, but how could we advance the accessibility for all kinds of young people – including those who need additional support? What kind of knowhow, practises and co-operation would we need to become more inclusive?

You are warmly welcome to explore these questions together at the online meeting of Maailmanvaihto – ICYE Finland. You will get a chance to share and discuss the challenges and good practices, and to brainstorm for co-operation possibilities. The event is targeted at all organizations who send or receive European Solidarity Corps volunteers or coordinate volunteering projects, but it’s open for all interested in working on inclusion.

In the meeting, you will hear about Maailmanvaihto’s European Solidarity Corps intern Roos Freije’s recent exploration of inclusive European Solidarity Corps volunteering. Roos will share the results and good practices.

In addition, European Solidarity Corps volunteer Susanna Halme will share their expertise by experience on advancing inclusion in international volunteering. Susanna participated through Maailmanvaihto – ICYE Finland in the European Solidarity Corps project called “Grenzenlos without Barriers” of the youth exchange organization Grenzenlos in Austria.
The event will be held in English.

Maailmanvaihto – ICYE Finland works as a sending and receiving support organization for volunteers of the European Solidarity Corps, besides which we coordinate European Solidarity Corps projects in Finland.
