UNV Overview: Advocating for volunteerism post-2015
UN Volunteers, 2014
by: United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme

This Overview presents UNV's vision on volunteerism and sustainable development, along with examples of volunteers' work in the post-2015 context. The post-2015 process offers an unprecedented opportunity for UNV to advocate for volunteerism and the values it stands for as an intrinsic component of any future global development framework.

The Overview also looks at the potential of volunteerism for the implementation of the post-2015 framework, in relation to the plan of action for the integration of volunteerism in all relevant issues of the United Nations after 2015. This plan will be presented in 2015 to the United Nations General Assembly following the call made in 2012 through Resolution A/Res/67/138.
