The European Volunteer Centre (CEV) launches the sixth edition of the European Volunteer Capital competition.
The award is chosen from the applicant municipalities by an international jury of experts who assess the extent to which the recommendations as listed in PAVE and the “5R” policy priorities as identified in the PAVE 5 year review “Helping Hands”, are shown to be implemented. How the European Solidarity Corps will be supported and promoted is also part of the criteria. The European Volunteering Capital Competition aims to promote volunteering at the local level by giving recognition to municipalities that support and strengthen partnerships with volunteer centres and volunteer-involving organisations and celebrate and promote volunteering and the impact made by volunteers.
The winners from the previous editions are Aarhus 2018 European Volunteering Capital, Sligo 2017 European Volunteering Capital, London 2016 European Volunteering Capital, Lisbon 2015 European Volunteering Capital and Barcelona 2014 European Volunteering Capital.
European municipalities are invited to candidate for the title of 2019 European Volunteering Capital.
Deadline for applications: 30 June 2017.
