We are pleased to inform you that the World Assembly of Youth (WAY) is one of the cooperating partners for the 26th biennial World Volunteer Conference that is scheudle to take place on 24-27 October 2022 in Abu Dhabi, UAE. We are very pleased with how the conference program is shaping up and very excited to be meeting for the first time for a World Conference in the Arab Region. This year, the Emirates Foundation is the host organization.
The conference theme is Volunteering for the Common Good: Making Life Better for People and Communities and we will seek to encourage volunteerism as an important part of creating a more equal and inclusive future for communities, recognize the tireless work of volunteers across the globe, and celebrate their exceptional volunteer response to the COVID-19 global pandemic. The conference will also aim to acknowledge that volunteer engagement and volunteering leadership is needed more than ever to help address the world’s most pressing challenges.
Since the first IAVE World Volunteer Conference in 1970, this convening has worked to create an environment that encourages networking, sharing of knowledge, and continuous learning for all those who believe volunteering improves their communities and their lives. But we need your help to ensure the success of the conference as the meeting ground for leaders of volunteering from throughout the world.
