Volunteerism in the post-2015 development agenda
The post-2015 process offers an unprecedented opportunity to advocate for volunteerism and the values it stands for as an integral component of the new development agenda.
UNV is actively involved in this process: at country level through the work of its volunteers; at global level by providing inputs to relevant UN mechanisms; and by supporting civil society participation in post-2015 decision-making and UN processes, together with volunteer groups.
