Call for Good Practices

Share your experiences and innovations on volunteering for the SDGs! Governments, civil society organizations, the private sector, UN entities and volunteers are invited to submit examples of their work towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The UN’s Decade of Action launches in 2020 in recognition of the fact that the SDGs are off-track – requiring new solutions, resources, and ambition. In order to leave no-one behind, the 2030 Agenda must be owned by people, implemented by people and for people. 

In July 2020, governments and their partners will come together at the Global Technical Meeting on Reimagining Volunteerism for the 2030 Agenda to discuss what we know about the transformative potential of volunteering, and to reflect on how to maximize the impact of volunteering under the 2030 Agenda.

To inform and support these discussions, you are invited to share evidence on your good practices, experiences and innovations.

Submit your cases here.

Examples could include:

  • New technologies to enable more people to volunteer;
  • Projects that use volunteering to empower marginalized groups;
  • Support for informal volunteers through legal advice or networking;
  • Policies that integrate volunteering into broader development efforts;
  • Legislation to protect volunteers or to uphold their rights;
  • New funding and partnership models that sustain volunteering; 
  • Tools that measure the social and economic value of volunteering.

Some of your examples will be selected to highlight the meeting in New York in July 2020. Later in 2020, case studies will be published on UNV’s online Volunteering Knowledge Portal. For further information, please contact us at
