Why a VolunteerActionCounts campaign?

The campaign gives volunteers like yourself, along with communities and organizations, a chance to show what you are doing for the future of our planet and generations to come.


Stories can be submitted by people individually (via Twitter or the campaign website) and by organizations whose volunteers are involved in projects for sustainable development. All of these submissions – individual actions and the number of volunteers involved in sustainable development initiatives – are added to the campaign volunteer counter, and featured through the website’s stories and multimedia.


The results of all these volunteer actions will be presented at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, Rio+20 in Brazil. A multi-media presentation will showcase the counted voices of volunteers worldwide to the over 50,000 people participating at the summit. The campaign will make your actions count at Rio+20!


We're asking you and all volunteers around the world to share your volunteer experiences using the Social Media tool you prefer - ideally Twitter, but Facebook and others also count - and make sure to tag your actions under the #actioncounts hash tag, so that we can make sure your contribution to improve the world is heard at Rio+20.
