Jun 10, 2015

When:      9 AM - 2 PM, Monday 15th June 2015

Where:    3rd Floor Auditorium, UN House, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

In previous years Mongolia witnessed progressive dialogues and cooperative efforts towards the enabling environment creation for volunteerism promotion in the country, which was led by the Office of the President of Mongolia and civil society partners. Currently there are many more promising discussions going on in relation to promotion of volunteerism, civic engagement and youth roles in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) not only at the national level but also at regional and global level.

This is an opportune moment, for the government, civil society and volunteering organizations as well as other emerging partners like the private sector, to resume and push forward the dialogue. This will help all stakeholders keep abreast of the recent development on the agenda, suggest constructive recommendations to move on and share common base for collaboration.

In light of this, United Nations Volunteers, Network of Mongolia Volunteer Organizations and Mongolian Red Cross Society, Mongolian Youth Federation jointly propose a national consultation workshop on volunteerism with following agenda:
