Forum's annual conference of International Volunteer Cooperation Organisations

Forum’s annual conference (IVCO) brings together leaders of international volunteering agencies from around the globe in a unique dialogue focusing on the challenges and opportunities currently facing volunteering for development – longstanding, and newly emerging. IVCO allows Forum members to learn, exchange ideas and practice innovation, build supportive peer networks, and participate in shaping sectoral policy and advocacy initiatives.

We are delighted that IVCO 2022 conference will once again be held in person, from the 16th to the 19th of October in Saly, Senegal, hosted by Crossroads International and the International Bureau for Children’s Rights.

The theme of IVCO 2022 is ‘A New Dawn for Volunteering for Development’. As we emerge from COVID-19, the conference will explore what is now possible for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, how multi-dimensional voluntary cooperation models can contribute to these efforts, and how the expertise of volunteers in the Global South can be at the heart of achieving the Goals.
