Centre for Sustainable Development Studies’ (CSDS) main aim is to build recognition of the ICYE long-term international volunteering program. Through social media and a wide range of local actions and events, it will raise awareness of the opportunities and benefits of volunteering, non-formal learning and intercultural exchange. CSDS will organize public events like an annual open day, monthly sharing workshops and seminars at universities, colleges and schools. It will also engage the public using social media using tools such as online newspapers, student magazines, Facebook, YouTube, blogs, etc. At the same time, it seeks to strengthen its network of local volunteers by engaging them in the planning, implementation and follow-up of its activities and events. Last but not least, it will strengthen and build new partnerships with government agencies, relevant embassies and local NGOs and INGOs, which it will meet and provide publicity material and information to boost their own visibility and that of the ICYE long-term volunteering program.
