E-volunteering in the time of COVID and beyond
Thursday Sept 17 @ 12-1 PM
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the international volunteer cooperation sector that works towards achieving the sustainable development goals in partnership with local organizations around the world. E-volunteering is one innovative way for individuals to respond to the pandemic and continue to support local organizations globally. Learn more about WUSC’s (World University Service of Canada) launch of its new E-volunteering program and how virtual volunteering has become an integral model in international cooperation.
Andrea Bacsfalusi is the Manager of Volunteer Mobilization at WUSC, a Canadian non-profit organization working to create a better world for all young people. Andrea has over 15 years experience working in the international development and volunteer cooperation sector in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America.
Brown Bag Lunches are Impact Hub Ottawa’s weekly lunch & learns led by Hubbers, for members and non-members alike. Topics vary each week, but you’re always sure to learn something new!
