“Promotion of youth volunteering and communication with public” is the title of a workshop that will take place in Latvia (4-5 June 2012) within the project VIT-Very Important Twinning, Volunteering in Town.
The Latvian Association of Local and Regional Governments (LALRG) will organise this international workshop in Gulbene municipality.
The workshop will focus on volunteering and aims at presenting good practices, opportunities and challenges on this field. It will be a good opportunity for debate on the future of this tool and on the ways to engage young people in voluntary work. The projectVIT aims at promoting volunteering in towns, addressing this issue from a participatory perspective. In particular, the project VIT wishes to create a platform involving different types of stakeholders that will encourage and revitalise twinning as a tool for long-lasting cooperation by promoting the EU values as democracy, volunteering and citizen participation.
