International Volunteer Day 5 December. Any plans?

  • by Volunteer Hub
  • November 2, 2017

5 December 2017. International Volunteer Day is celebrated each year on 5 December and was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1985.  

The day provides volunteer organisations and individual volunteers with the opportunity to raise the public awareness of their contributions to economic and social development at local, national and international levels.

International Volunteer Day is celebrated worldwide with thousands of volunteers involved in a range of events as diverse as the volunteers themselves. Events include clean-up campaigns, conferences, exhibitions, morning teas and many other activities all aimed at highlighting the role of volunteers in their communities.

What will you be doing this year? Speak to a service club about the role of a palliative care volunteer? Hold an event to acknowledge the contribution of volunteers? Set-up a display in your health service? Post a story with your media unit about palliative care volunteers?

If you have plans for something special please email us, we'd love to hear from you.
