The Global Volunteering Leadership Summit has begun in Abu Dhabi, under the theme, "The Role of Volunteering Leadership: Responding to COVID-19 and Building a Sustainable Recovery".
Organised by the Emirates Foundation, in association with the International Association for Volunteer Effort (IAVE), the summit is a global gathering of volunteer leaders and national volunteering leadership organisations from some 50 countries who will meet to discuss the future for volunteering including a focus on their leadership role.
The summit features a range of international guest speakers who will be sharing their insights on various topics on matters including disruptive innovation: responding to the covid-19 pandemic; creating an enabling environment for volunteering; volunteering and COVID-19: lessons for disaster preparedness and much more, including panels, discussions and breakout sessions, according to WAM.
The Global Volunteering Leadership Summit will be a precursor to the 26th IAVE World Volunteer Conference, the largest global gathering of volunteer experts and practitioners, which will be hosted in Abu Dhabi towards the end of 2022.
