Volunteering: motivation, value and recognition

Public Hearing - Brussels, Belgium
Poster - Hearing on Volunteering

The hearing "Volunteering: motivation, value and recognition" was organised in the framework of the EESC Coordination Group on the European Year of Volunteering 2011, chaired by Mr Pavel Trantina.

Experts presented their views on:

  • why Europeans volunteer
  • what value volunteering brings to citizens and societies
  • how we could better recognise the benefits of volunteering.

The conclusions of the hearing fed into the final report summing up the activities during EYV 2011 and helped put forward proposals to European decision-makers.
