WELCOME TO THAILAND

Sawasdee! (Hello in Thai) We are very excited and honoured to invite you to the 16th IAVE Asia Pacific Regional Volunteer Conference and Youth Volunteer Conference in Bangkok, Thailand on November 11-15, 2019. This 5-day event is hosted by the International Association for Volunteer Effort (IAVE) in collaboration with Volunteer Spirit Network which is a national platform of volunteering promotion in Thailand. The conference aims to bring together civil society, government sectors, corporates, NGOs and academia to uncover values that need to be in place for volunteering to be valuable, sustainable and beneficial to the volunteers, organizations and wider community.

This year’s theme – unlocking the power of volunteering – aims to explore all possibilities of creating an enabling environment of volunteering promotion and finding the keys to enhance recognition of the value that volunteers bring as well as improving accessibility of volunteering opportunities.

The conference will offer you opportunities not only to encourage networking but also discovering and strengthening the power of volunteering.

We would be delighted to have you participate in this conference to be inspired and be a part of what guest speakers will share about the direction of volunteering and its impact on community. We would also love to hear your stories, thoughts and opinions to this direction.

Bangkok is such a great place to visit and it has attracted millions of visitors from around the world. The city is packed with everything from historical sites to modern facilities, excitement and great food which makes it another great place to be for conference.

Let’s unlock the power of volunteering together! Looking forward to meeting you in Bangkok!

The Conference’s Theme and Subthemes

In considering of the theme of the event, we recognize that volunteering takes place in many ways and, across all sectors and within a multitude of structures. However, we believe that the underlying values of good practice makes volunteering valuable, sustainable and beneficial for everyone. There are underlying values that need to be in place for volunteering to be valuable, sustainable and beneficial to the volunteer, the organization and to the wider community.

Within the theme “UNLOCKING THE POWER OF VOLUNTEERING”, five subthemes will be explored.

We want people to leave the conference with inspiration that together we can create change to the region and better understanding of quality in volunteering for development, with tools and ideas for working towards quality practice.
