Grow to Dream – WEB FORUM - European Volunteering in the moment of COVID-19

Conference – Symposium - Forum

24-25 April 2020 | WEB-FORUM, Germany

With our WEB-Forum wish to create a space for a dialogue among practitioners (experts, youth workers, social activists, volunteers) from around Europe involved in ESC-Volunteering projects facing the challenges around COVID-19. Register please till 19.4.

We wish to create a space for a dialogue among practitioners (experts, youth workers, social activists, volunteers) from around Europe involved in ESC-Volunteering projects, for:

  • exploring how to support solidarity and mutual learning among volunteers and local community in the time of COVID19, with a special focus on young people with fewer opportunities
  • sharing best practices, which could be directly adapted in the project facing a crisis with isolation and virus.
  • as a result finding solutions to deal with ESC volunteering projects in the present situation
  • harvesting impulses how to work constructively with the present situation, how to monitor it, take lessons, evaluate it, and plan future steps 
  • creating a networking space for mutual support among the different actors (coordinators, mentors, volunteers, stakeholders)
  • sharing good practice examples on how to continue the implementation of ESC volunteering project during pandemic times
  • developing strategic solutions for our organisations, collecting recommendations for stakeholder (NA and SALTO), empowering volunteers for networking

We aim with the forum to: 

  • develop a common ground of quality for future network activities within the European Solidarity Program
  • raise awareness of how to foster the inclusion dimension and accessibility of our activities with young people 
  • develop better understanding of how to increase the impact of our activities on local and international level
  • create a space for sharing good practices, and exchange our experience to grow together within future partnerships

Topics/Questions:

  • how could we use resources, skills and knowledge from the project to deal with the new curcumstances: dealing with uncertainty, fear and motivation of the volunteers - how to support?
  • how to restructure project activities according to the circumstances, remaining the solidarity dimension, digital solutions, local community support
  • formal aspects of the project implementation (finances, changed duration, recrutation...)
  • how to keep the volunteers learning process going on in times of Corona-crisis
  • change of activities/ space for reflection/recognition of learning/ digital learning
  • vision for the time after the Corona-Pandemia - how ESC can support the restart

Program Elements:

  • solidarity - inclusion dimension
  • best practices from the projects which could be relevant in present situation (using appreciative inquiry method and the Art of Hostig Approach )
  • developing support structures (for Voluneters, Organsitions, Local Communtiy)
  • innovation and flexibility in project implementation
  • non-formal learning ONLINE (explore tools and methods)
  • project management in an uncertain perspective of the future
  • visioning and design thinking for project development and future partnerships
