Forming a national volunteering research agenda in the Philippines

During the month of June, the Australian Volunteers Program worked in partnership with the Philippine National Volunteer Service Coordinating Agency (PNVSCA), to hold a hybrid, multi-sectoral stakeholder workshop on creating a national volunteering research agenda.

A total of 108 online and onsite participants worked together in identifying the national landscape of volunteering and how national research can help mainstream volunteerism in the country. Attendees included officials from the government, civil society organisations, academics, and different international and local volunteer sending organisations from different parts of the Philippines.

This is an Innovation Hub activity, under the Global Volunteering Accelerator workstream. The workstream explores how the program can effectively partner to support national and local volunteering with governments and peak bodies, which could be replicated in different countries and contexts. More information on the workstream will follow.
