Major volunteer event to be broadcast on the internet
15 October 2003
Dublin: Community Service Volunteers (CSV) has announced it will host a live webcast of Volonteurope's annual conference from Dublin later this month.
Volonteurope is an annual conference that brings together volunteers and volunteering organisations from across Europe. This year it takes place from October 23-26 and, with the help of webcasting, aims to reach beyond those physically able to attend.
For those who cannot attend the conference, they will be able to watch it via the CSV website which will have a link to the webcast and to other edited clips from the conference on the Volonteurope section of the site. Users can also contribute their own thoughts via an email chat room.
CSV Media will be pre-recording one workshop and live webcasting two workshops. The web-casts will be recorded and available to people with computers and Internet access from 12pm on October 23 with live coverage on October 24 from 9:30am to 1pm.
The Volonteurope conference is an annual training and networking event including over 30 interactive workshops as well as visits to a number of local projects working with volunteers.
