With big success conducted the first European Conference on Young Volunteerism on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of November 2018. 70 volunteers and Caritas’ representatives from 31 different countries met in the beautiful city of Vienna to discuss about the future of the Volunteerism and build a strong Network for collaboration between Caritas Europa Member Organizations.
The participants –between them two members of Young Caritas in Action, from Greece- had the opportunity to interact with young people from other European countries, share experiences, discuss about the different contexts they are coming from and create their common vision for the future in Europe. Through discussions and interactive workshops they focused on their mission and set their common goals: raising awareness on social issues and promoting the spirit of volunteering. Vienna Declaration was the fruit of the Conference, where Young Caritas are committed to take action for a world of Solidarity and Justice!
Young Caritas didn’t say goodbye but promised to meet again in the near future, which is coming … full of hope for change!
