On Thursday, 19 April, the partners of the European Volunteer Measurement Project will host a conference marking the final event of the EVMP Preparatory Phase. The public conference “Value and role of volunteering: Presentation of ILO Manual on the Measurement of Volunteer Work” will be held from 9:30-1pm in Rome at the National Council of the Economy and Labour Conference Hall, and will feature EVMP’s progress to date in completing the ILO Manual, disseminating it widely among civil society and volunteering leaders, bringing it to the attention of statistics offices, and encouraging and supporting its implementation.
Featured speakers include Adriana Mata from the International Labour Organization, Lester Salamon from Johns Hopkins University, Leonardo Becchetti, University of Rome “Tor Vergata,” Linda Laura Sabbadini, Director of ISTAT’s Department for social and environmental statistics, Giuseppe Guzzetti, President of ACRI, the Association of Italian Foundations and Savings Banks, and Stefano Ragghianti, President of Fondazione Volontariato e Partecipazione.
An afternoon session will subsequently bring together statistical offices that have completed the implementation if the ILO Manual, or have committed to doing so, for a Technical Workshop to discuss progress to date, technical support needs, and next steps. Participants will include representatives from statistical institutions in Italy, Poland, Hungary, Germany, Montenegro, and Portugal. To see some of the lessons that countries that have implemented the Manual have shared at previous technical workshops, please visit our resources for statisticians page.
The Planning and Organisation Phase of the project was supported by a coalition that includes ACRI, Forum Terzo Settore, Consulta Nazionale del Volontariato presso il Forum Terzo Settore, ConVol, Consulta Nazionale dei Comitati di Gestione, and CSVnet.
