We will focus on criticals role that volunteers have played across the world delivering the SDGs and helping build stronger, more resilient and inclusive communities for the final decade of action. Given the current context of Covid-19, we will include case studies demonstrating how volunteers have played a key role in responding to the pandemic. Governments and institutional partners will share evidence of how volunteers have supported the Covid-19 response, through mobilisation of community health workers, promoting responsible public health messaging, combating fake news, and supporting marginalised children’s access to education, as well as accountability of delivering the SDG agenda.
You are invited to a Zoom webinar.
