On Wednesday I was back in London to attend the England Volunteering Development Council meeting where we heard from Markus Held, Director of the European Volunteer Centre about plans for the European Year of Volunteering 2011. The European Commission agreed, in June this year, to designate 2011 as the European Year of Volunteering and it is now awaiting approval from the 27 national ministers on 27 November. The aim is “to get Europe talking about volunteers for a whole year”. Assuming it goes ahead, one effect will be that for the next two years existing EU funding programmes will give priority to applications relating to volunteering.
