Maulina SariUNV programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide. Volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development, and it benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer. UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for volunteerism globally, encouraging partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing volunteers. “In celebrating IVD.. We are medical doctors invested in enabling the health sector for citizen engagement: in the development of health policies and supportive patient's right; in volunteer management and support; in measuring the impact of volunteering; and in knowledge building and knowledge sharing about volunteering and what it can achieve.” “We engage the will, the positive energy and the innovation of millions of people towards realizing SDG's and in building health cohesion, mutual understanding and the achievement of community- health centred goals.”

- Geoff Prewitt, Chief of the Development Programming Section (UNV Bonn) and Zelimir Mijic (UNV FU representative) participated in a number of events during the week of IVD in Bosnia and Herzegovina - both in Sarajevo and Banja Luka, Republic of Srpska. With UN Volunteer colleagues, we supported working with people with disabilities, street cleaning drives and other. We also participated in a wonderful volunteer gallery walk (Sarajevo) and Annual Volunteer Award Ceremony (Banja Luka). What a wonderful spirit of volunteerism that was shown - from all ages and genders and backgrounds - truly universal!

INternational Volunteer Day (IVD) 2015
On December 5th, International Volunteer Day, we not only celebrate volunteerism in all its facets - but also pay special tribute to volunteers working to implement the new global goals. Through volunteerism the person can impact the sustainable development agenda by mobilizing and engaging governments and communities. For IVD 2015 join us in recognizing the individuals who are engaged in volunteering their time, energies, and skills to change the world for a better future.
In this year’s IVD campaign you will see questions such as “Are you part of the change?”, “Will you take the challenge?“, “Are you ready?” and their answers, as thousands of individuals show how their volunteering is making a contribution and bring to light how volunteering is invaluable in making the world a better place.
Join us by posting your selfie here or on social media tagged with #IVD2015selfie and stories before and on 5 December 2015, filling the map to show how volunteering makes the difference in the Global Goals..
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
“As we seek to build capacities and to help the new agenda to take root, volunteerism can be another powerful and cross-cutting means of implementation. Volunteerism can help to expand and mobilize constituencies and to engage people in national planning and implementation for sustainable development goals. And volunteer groups can help to localize the new agenda by providing new areas of interaction between Governments and people for concrete and scalable actions.”
