1. Kick-off meeting
The Kick-off meeting will officially launch EuroVolNet, where project partners together will discuss the project’s vision and objectives and agree upon a specific action plan.
2. Seminar I
This seminar will have three core focus areas: legal, fiscal and managerial aspects of voluntary based organisations. Extended topics will include legal risks and considerations, staffing analysis, policies, procedures, job descriptions, recruitment, screening, hiring, rewards and recognition. For inspirational, motivational and collaborative purposes, expert interventions will include presentations from outside the traditional sport sector.
3. Seminar II
This seminar will have two core focus areas: educational and political needs, threats and opportunities for voluntary organisations. Extended topics will include orientation and training of new volunteers, continuing education, quality marks of volunteer training programmes, financial basis of voluntary sport activities, and fundraising by, through and with volunteers. For inspirational, motivational and collaborative purposes, expert intervention will include presentations from outside the traditional sport sector.
The workshop will provide a time, space and facilitation for participant-led development of their own plans of action for improving existing or developing new Voluntary Services. The progressive content of the seminars in combination with professional workshop facilitation will provide the pre-conditions for participants to develop their own actions as well as to establish a sustained international network and international cooperation.
5. Online Voluntary Services Tutorial
The Voluntary Services Tutorial will be a leading resource of good practices which have been collected in the EuroVolNet project. The tutorial will be designed to provide inspiration and motivation to national association political leaders and volunteeer services managers by aggregaating the knowledge of the best pratises in an easy accessible, cross-thematic way. The best practises of the EuroVolNet project will thus be documented in a grid of the project thematics, and in this way, users of the tutorial can have general methods within each theme presented, supplemented with best pratises as further inspiration.
On-going consultations (primarily by Skype Conferences and email) between ISCA and project partners will use project knowledge to inspire and develop their voluntary services and to allow bilateral match-making with other organisations with relevant experience.
7. Closing Conference
Project Closure will be implemented in partnership with the Danish Ministry of Culture during the Danish Presidency of the European Union. This will allow an adequate follow-up 10 years after the Aarhus Declaration on volunteering of the EU Sport Ministers (from 2002) and enable political visibility to the Political Recommendations of the project.
