Global Meeting of International Voluntary Service

The Global meeting of International Voluntary Service (GMIVS) organisations met twice at the start of 2017; at the beginning of March during the Alliance Technical Meeting in Russia and once again in Paris one month later. The proximity of these meetings allowed the network representatives present to better prepare the second meeting which focused on network updates, sharing work on common campaigns and developing ideas for common initiatives.

The GMIVS also allowed for the networks to discuss and agree on important advocacy strategies such as that for the EU Solidarity Corps which is a matter of continuing concern to IVS networks due to the nature of its proposed implementation and the lack of information and consultation with civil society.

The next meeting is foreseen to take place in November.
