We are delighted to share that Professor Peter Kanyandago was invited as a key speaker to present at the Global Technical Meeting “Re-imagining Volunteering for the 2030 Agenda” (GTM 2020).
The GTM2020 took place virtually on 13-16 July 2020 as a special event during the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in 2020, as set out in General Assembly resolution A/RES/73/140 on Volunteering for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
It was co-chaired by the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and was organised in collaboration with the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs. Professor Kanyandago spoke to the GTM Plenary Session 2 “Global Volunteering Snapshot: What is volunteering doing for the SDGs” on the Live conversation “How can evidence and knowledge help us reimagine volunteering?”. More than 4,000 people participated in the virtual session and the recording remains available and was also widely disseminated via UN social media pages (UN Web TV, UNV Twitter and UNV Facebook).
In the presentation, Professor Kanyandago highlighted how the experiences of the Global South can help improving the understandings of relationships between volunteering and the Sustainable Development Goals Agenda (SDGs), drawing particularly on the RYVU project’s focus on the role of volunteering in developing young refugees’ self-reliance, network and skills.
