Call for applications: European volunteering capital competition 2019

  • cooperation

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.

If your municipality would like recognition for their volunteering initiatives, to strengthen the local framework for volunteers, and inspire a culture of volunteerism in your community, then apply now to become the next #EVCapital! 

The award is chosen from the applicant municipalities by an international jury of experts connected with volunteering, representing civil society, the private, for-profit sector, as well as the EU institutions.

The application process has two stages, with a written contribution in June and a presentation at the CEV conference in October in front of an audience of a wide range of volunteering stakeholders from different fields and sectors from across Europe. 

The winning municipality will be in 1/2 December 2017, prior to the International Volunteer Day, at a ceremony hosted by CEV.

Deadline: 30 June
