European Volunteer Center (CEV)
The European Volunteer Centre (CEV) is a European network of currently 74 mainly national and regional volunteer centers and volunteer development agencies across Europe, that together work to support and promote voluntary activity.
The member organizations of CEV represent thousands of volunteer organizations, associations and other voluntary and community groups at local, regional, national and in some cases international level.
CEV channels the collective priorities and concerns of its member organizations to the institutions of the European Union. It also acts as a central forum for the exchange of policy, practice and information on volunteering.
One such priority is senior volunteering and active aging, in a Europe where life expectancy is increasing and where senior citizens have a critical role to play. This is the context in which CEV is organizing a conference entitled âThink Future, Volunteer Togetherâ. The main aim of the event is to present the results of the EU-funded project on senior volunteering exchanges to all the decision makers and relevant stakeholders in this field.
