This week marks National Volunteer Week, an annual initiative that sees the work of volunteers across Australia recognised and celebrated - and it has been heartening to see the extensive media coverage the week has already received.
While the contribution of volunteer workforces should be recognised and celebrated every day, there is definitely a place for a dedicated week that brings attention to the hundreds of millions of hours donated by millions of people each year.
How the current crisis has created the perfect opportunity for the event industry to get back to basics
“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning.” Albert Einstein
The COVID-19 crisis has had an undisputed impact on the events industry, as events have been cancelled, postponed or moved online.
However this has also provided the perfect opportunity to stop, challenge, question and rethink how organisations plan and deliver events.
This year National Volunteer Week will run from Monday 18 – Sunday 24 May with the theme, ‘Changing Communities. Changing Lives.’
We have created this easy to use toolkit to help you prepare and celebrate National Volunteer Week.
