Project Office of the European Volunteering Capital 2021

Together with the betterplace lab, the Schwarzkopf Foundation Young Europe is running the project office of Berlin European Volunteering Capital 2021.

Facts & Figures

  • Title awarded by the Centre for European Volunteer (CEV) in Brussels
  • 7 fields of action: Mental Health, Digital Innovation for Engagement & Neighborhood ; Climate Protection & Environment ; Migration and participation ; Education and Development ; Open Source ; Sport

In the campaign year, we as the responsible body would like to highlight the already existing volunteer work in the capital and further promote engagement and democracy in Berlin. Together with our project partners, we will present existing and new offerings in this area to a national audience and discuss with a wide range of actors how Berlin can develop further as a city of volunteerism in the future.

Events in 2021

The project office plans events throughout the year to make the diverse opportunities for getting involved in the city visible, to create additional offerings and to address new target groups. More concretely: discussion events, action forums, campaigns and awards open up space for networking, discussion and engagement. Behind our activities is the firm belief that volunteering strengthens democracy and social cohesion.

The more active volunteers themselves are in shaping the Year of Action, the more obvious it becomes what makes Berlin the European Volunteer Capital. Every single commitment contributes to this. That is why the motto for the Year of Action 2021 is #EntdeckeDasWirInDir (#DiscovertheWeInYou).
