- "Volunteering with UNV has been a great way to learn more about the incredible work that UNV. It is a wonderful way to stay connected to the worldwide issues and learn about people and environment. I had an opportunity to work on design projects of UNV, and it a was lovely experience and a chance to participate to make the world a better place to live in. I would like to summarize that volunteering is a way to convert passion into action and make it an inspiration for others“ #IVD2015selfie - M. Junaid Abbasi

Ana M. CeperoVoluntariado es la oportundad de ser y hacer comunidad. Estamos diseñados para vivir en colaboración. El voluntariado además nos permite crecer como seres humanos y como profesionales. Junto a otros, he podido contagiar la relevancia de ser voluntarios en proyecto de: alcance comunitario, misiones, artes y juventud. Por que las acciones cuentan, hoy saludo y honro a quienes como yo son fuerza en el lugar donde les ha tocado estar y en aquellos a los cuales se han movilizado.

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.”
