The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme contributes to peace and development through volunteerism. UNV is inspired by the conviction that volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development and by the idea that everyone can contribute their time and energy towards peace and development. With partners, UNV advocates for volunteerism, integrates volunteerism into development planning and mobilizes volunteers. The enormous potential of volunteerism is an inspiration to UNV and to volunteers around the world. Our mission in the Communications Section of the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is to enhance communication about the value of volunteerism for peace and development and the contributions of UNV and UN Volunteers.
