The International Conference on Volunteering “Volunteers – Heroes of Today”, will take place during the 25th Summer Universiade, from July 10th to July 12th, 2009.
This Conference, for which we hope that will achieve some important conclusions and recommendations on how to implement structural improvements in volunteer community and volunteers in general, not only in Serbia, but also in the entire region of South East Europe, will gather around 100 young people up to 35 years of age from across the Old Continent to discuss the role of sport volunteers and the role of youth in general in sports.The Conference will put forward its perspectives, creating a strategy for a heritage and legacy of volunteers, and make proposals for further strengthening the power of volunteer movement through both formal and non-formal forms of education. Participants will have a unique opportunity to attend to certain sport events held during the 25th Summer Universiade.
- Promoting success of volunteer program for 25th Universiade Belgrade 2009 to the international and local voluntary sector
- Promoting the positive volunteer energy for sustainable dissemination of volunteering in the local communities
- Collection of best practices from different countries + recommendations and actions on each workshop topic
- UN and EU based actions for future development of volunteering (European Year of Volunteering 2011 and UN 2001 + 10 anniversary)
Conference is divided into two sections. First section is based on a series of lectures held by the experts in relevant fields, which will set the foundation for further discussion during the workshops. Second section is based on workshops to discuss the topics covered by the lectures.
Through networking, participants will learn about other projects, since the idea of the Conference is also to promote various interest groups that are dealing with volunteers and connect them under the one idea of volunteering. In this regard it will be essential to focus on the European youth, sport and other programs and the impact they could have on civil society in the coming years.
