UNV supports the global conversation for the development of the post-2015 framework and sustainable development goals (SDGs). In this context, volunteerism as a form of civic engagement, is increasingly recognized as a key complementary mechanism for social, economic and environmental transformation.
UNV Position Statement on the post-2015 development agenda
- Volunteerism is universal and strengthens civic engagement, social inclusion, solidarity and ownership.
- Volunteerism should be part of a new measuring framework that goes beyond GDP and demonstrates progress in human well-being and sustainable human development.
