About IAVE’s World Volunteer Conferences

" Creating the moment and stimulating the dialogue " is IAVE’s goal for its convenings. We bring together diverse groups of leaders of volunteering in settings that encourage discussion, reflection, and learning. Participants are invited to focus on how to increase the impact of volunteering on the world’s most pressing problems.

Since the first world conference in 1970 in Los Angeles, USA, IAVE has convened 22 more global events. The structure of the conferences always includes plenaries with challenging and inspiring speakers; forums that dig deep into challenging issues confronting the field; workshops that are designed to present new ideas, expose highly effective practices and stimulate participant dialogue; and ample time to meet informally and to learn about the host country.
