Blended event: Solidarity_Opening the door to new volunteering fields

Partnership-building Activity

29 November - 3 December 2021 | To be confirmed, Finland

We want to open the door to new fields in volunteering! The event aims to bring together different organisations, newcomers and the ones that have experience and are interested in new fields of volunteering.

How can European Solidarity Corps - volunetering projects be implemented in fields such as climate change, social economy, libraries and museums, online activism, intergenerational dialogue, human rights and other areas? 

This networking event aims to bring together new and experienced organisations who are interested to become part of the European Solidarity Corps community; a community of active organisations that goes beyond by exploring new volunteering areas and co-creates relevant opportunities through an inspiring process. 


  • Create a frame for sharing experience in the field of volunteering, from different areas of expertise 
  • Discuss and understand Solidarity as one of the core values in volunteering  
  • Explore new fields of volunteering beyond the outreach of the former European Voluntary Service programme  
  • Motivate the organisations to join the European Solidarity Corps community
