Forum is excited to announce that IVCO 2022 will be hosted in Senegal by Crossroads International and the International Bureau for Children’s Rights (IBCR).
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.
The co-hosts will work closely with the Senegalese Government and National Committee for Coordination and Promotion of Volunteerism, and with volunteer-involving organisations in Senegal and the West Africa.
As usual, IVCO will take place in October. We will share a Save the Date notice once the dates for the conference are confirmed. We are looking forward to re-connecting with our community at the first in-person IVCO since 2019, and as with all in-person events this will be dependent on COVID restrictions.
