To ensure that society is as resilient as possible in natural and man-made disasters, authorities cannot function on their own. Active civil society organisations and skilled volunteers are needed to support authorities in their actions. Volunteers play a significant and vital role in helping to ensure their local communities are safe and societies are resilient towards threats and risks. Engaging and involving volunteers contribute to the creation of a common societal culture, where all actors play a significant and acomplementing role in resilience.
In this webinar we will present the main results and recommendations for enhancing volunteerism in the field of civil protection and discuss the results with you - the actors in the field.
Main themes of results:
- Structures and coordination
- Recruiting and motivating volunteers
- International cooperation
The project is supported by Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland. More about the project - https://ubc.net/content/resit-situational-picture-volunteerism-societal-resilience-baltic-sea-region
