Jointly hosted by VSO and Forum, the annual conference for International Volunteering Cooperation Organisations (IVCO) will be held in Kigali, Rwanda from 29-30 October, 2019.

Over three days, there will be a combination of keynotes, plenary and breakout sessions to explore concepts related to 'Advancing Quality in Volunteering for Development'.

Day 1:  Advancing Quality through Standards 

Sessions will provide global perspectives on advancing quality through standards and see the launch of the new Global Standard for Volunteering for Development. Delegates will also have an opportunity to explore how standards can best help us to deliver value for local communities.

Day 2: Volunteering Models – Innovation and Good Practice 

Delegates will take an in-depth look at good practice across different modalities of volunteering. Delegates will also have the opportunity to explore projects working towards the sustainable development goals through participating in quick-fire interactive sessions.

Day 3: Communicating the Impact of Volunteering 

We will focus on how we can improve our collective efforts to both measure and communicate the impact of volunteering. Delegates will also receive an update from UNV on the Global Technical Meeting on volunteering in 2020.
