Volunteer action counts - make your voice heard
10 May 2012
United Nations Volunteers is showcasing the importance of volunteers on sustainable development through a new multimedia campaign.
The campaign, 'Volunteer Action Counts', aims to be a central part of the upcoming Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development, due to kick off in June this year in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
By showcasing voluntary action at volunteeractioncounts.org and inviting submissions on its facebook and twitter pages, the campaign will advocate for volunteerism, citizen participation and civil society engagement in conference deliberations, declarations, outcome documents and follow-up implementation.
To take part, you can share your volunteering story through the @ActionCounts twitter and facebook pages.
Get involved in the campaign and show the world that volunteer action is essential to achieve sustainable development.
