“E-volunteering – building an online volunteering ecosystem” – Mind Mapping Stakeholders Event
Setting the basis for efficient e-volunteering practices with high quality standards
We are looking for youth workers, stakeholders and volunteers to support us in the process of identifying, analyzing and prioritizing the qualitative elements of a research on best practices, existing policies and current challenges of e-volunteering
Volunteering strengthens societal solidarity, creates opportunities for learning, provides young people with new skills and strengthens their sense of belonging to the society. However, digitalization has brought a major swift to the structure of youth organizations and their perspective on volunteering, while volunteers themselves were forced to seek different volunteering opportunities, distancing themselves from the traditional in-person and on-site activities.
The project “E-volunteering – building an online volunteering ecosystem” aims at enabling the transformation and change of transnational volunteering practices, by using new approaches introduced through a sustainable e-volunteering ecosystem. In the first phase of the project we are holding a mind mapping event for stakeholders, with the goal to identify, analyze and prioritize the main actors with a stake in e-volunteering, their specificities as target groups, set the basis for conducting a research for analyzing policies, needs and practices of cross-sectoral stakeholders involved in youth online volunteering.
In order to do this we are ready to conduct a 3-level research to
Explore the current situation of volunteering both offline and online
Collect experiences and best practices of stakeholders relevant to volunteering
Map existing policies relevant to volunteering that require update
