Chair of event – themed on the European Year of Volunteering – drawing together communication leaders from Belgium, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Netherlands, Norway and Spain to share good practice.
Make a difference! Event Programme
Theme & Opportunity
The European Year of Volunteering is a critical-mass moment for Europe’s leading communicators to look at a set of key challenges affecting organisations, society and individuals working in comms:
•‘Here comes everybody’ – Are volunteers transforming communication?
•‘Citizen Journalist’ – Opportunity or Threat?
•‘Professional volunteering’ – An oxymoron?
•‘Age of austerity’ – What resources do you need to make volunteering work?
We can help you grapple with all of the above – Come to Copenhagen on October 24th and network with, debate, share and learn from some of Europe & the Middle East’s leading communication practitioners. We can guarantee that it’ll broaden your outlook, grow your network and bring new opportunities – and perhaps most importantly, enable you to go out and make a real difference!
