The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. UNV works with partners to integrate qualified, highly motivated and well-supported UN Volunteers into development programming and promote the value and global recognition of volunteerism.
International Volunteers Day (IVD), is an international observance that was mandated for UNV to coordinate by the UN General Assembly in 1985. The Day is an opportunity for us all to promote volunteerism, encourage governments to support volunteer efforts and recognize volunteer contributions to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at local, national and international levels. UNV coordinates a campaign to promote IVD every year, building on the impact volunteers have in communities, nationally and globally, for peace and development.
This year, the campaign will ride on the momentum and messaging of the outcomes of the Global Technical Meeting (GTM). IVD 2020 will be a continued dialogue with all stakeholders and general public on the call to Action of the GTM and reimagining volunteering for the 2030 Agenda.
The consultant will be supervised by the Communications Specialist, P4, in the External Relations and Communications Section (ERCS).
