The 30th ICYE Federation General Assembly took place in Næstved, Denmark, from 23rd – 28th October 2017. Attended by around 60 participants from 40 countries around the world, the 6-day programme comprised enriching discussions on the growth and development of the Federation, on developing an ethical code for our programmes and activities, a market place for negotiations, and a sightseeing trip around Copenhagen.
The ICYE General Assembly also accepted three new members into the Federation: Subir al Sur/Fundación SES, Argentina, Association Joint, Italy, and GIED – Global Initiative for Exchange and Development Inc., the Philippines. We are pleased to have them on board and look forward to intensifying cooperation with them for the ICYE long and short term programmes.

The main aim of the Erasmus+ Key Action 2 project “Calling Youth to Action in a Global Visibility Drive” is to promote the value of volunteering in terms of benefits to the host organisation and the volunteer. The project brings together ICYE member organisations from 21 countries around the world to develop a visibility and promotion strategy that is realistic, cost effective, well-timed and successful.
The project started with the Visibility Kick Off in Berlin (6-9 November 2016), where the team of facilitators drafted the programme of the international multiplier training to take place in Accra, Ghana, 16 – 20 November 2016.
From January to August 2017 all participating organisations will implement a visibility strategy by running promotional campaigns in their respective countries with the support of local and international volunteers.
The project will come to a close at the Visibility Evaluation in Paris, France in September 2017, where the campaigns will be presented and their success assessed.
A Visibility Guide outlining an effective promotion strategy for the volunteering field will be produced at the project’s end with best practice examples for a successful visibility drive.
