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 international development volunteering – longstanding, and newly emerging. IVCO allows Forum members to learn, exchange ideas and practice innovation, build supportive peer networks, and participate in shaping sectorial policy and advocacy initiatives.

In my role as Executive Director of WUSC and Forum Board member, I have found the annual IVCO conference to be the key event, a ‘must do’ in the diary.

IVCO provides an opportunity for thought leaders in volunteering for development to come together, work together, and most importantly, reflect upon and continuously improve our work and reach in volunteering for development.
