(Day 1) Reimagining Volunteering for the 2030 Agenda - Global Technical Meeting (GTM2020): Opening, Session 1 (13 to 16 July 2020)
Opening and welcome
SESSION 1. A global invitation to reimagine volunteering for the 2030 Agenda
The Global Technical Meeting (GTM2020) on 'Reimagining Volunteering for the 2030 Agenda' will advance the debate on volunteering for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The virtual event will help shape the future of volunteering as a powerful resource for the Decade of Action.
Worldwide, one billion volunteers are a formidable force for the 2030 Agenda. The collective power of volunteering to tackle complex challenges is evident more than ever in the response to COVID-19. But the role of volunteering in achieving the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs is not yet supported to achieve its full potential.
