Torino Winter Olympics' social forum on volunteerism
Tapping into the energy surrounding the Olympics, including the presence of thousands of volunteers, the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme has teamed up with the non-profit coordination for Torino 2006 and Idea Solidale to host a forum on 25 February discussing volunteerism and the promotion of human rights. The session is part of the Village of Olympic Values and Solidarity, also known as the Ethical Village, a Games’ side event focused on cultural and social issues throughout the Games’ duration.
The session will bring together volunteers from the Olympic Games’ Volunteer Programme and representatives from various non-profit and volunteer-involving organizations, universities and the media.
