Deadline: January 6, 2020

Location: Bonn, Germany

Meeting the ambitions of the 2030 Agenda requires the efforts of all of society. Everywhere, every day, ordinary people are acting on the issues that they care about. Over one billion active volunteers are carrying out a wide range of roles, from providing care and support to neighbors, extending basic services to under-served areas, campaigning for policy change, or building new relationships across polarized communities.


Selected participants will get to join a dynamic community of practice to share ideas and provide challenge through the study development process.
All selected innovators will have their work published by UNV, including on the global Knowledge Hub on Volunteerism.
Based on the final submissions by the innovators, two contributors will be awarded a further USD 15,000 to pilot their idea in relation to one context (country/community) by the end of 2020.
Based on progress by May 2020, one innovator may be selected to participate in the Global Technical Meeting on Volunteering in July 2020 at the High-Level Political Forum on the SDGs in New York (maximum 2 representatives).


The eligible applicants include any individual or organization (public or private) that can demonstrate relevant expertise in volunteerism research and measurement or a related field (governance, social development).
Collaboration/partnerships under one proposal are possible, however UNV will only be able to issue one agreement with one individual and/or responsible legal entity per proposal and additional internal arrangements must be made by innovators.
Organizations or institutions must identify the lead person who will be involved in the development of the paper in their proposal.
