 The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme announced today the five winners of the “UNV Online Volunteering Award 2015” and launched a global voting campaign for the public’s favorite winner.  


Through the UNV Online Volunteering service (
www.onlinevolunteering.org), UNV mobilizes every year more than 11,000 UN Online Volunteers who undertake more than 17,000 online volunteering assignments. 60 percent of UN Online Volunteers come from the global South.

Congratulating the winners, UNV Executive Coordinator Richard Dictus emphasized that “In recent years we have witnessed significant changes in the way volunteerism organizes itself, is managed, and flexibly solves problems in an increasingly technology-enabled world. Online volunteering unlocks innovative spaces for individuals to engage, acquire voice and contribute to global development. These winning teams are striking examples of how people pool their energies together and align their interests for social objectives”.

In the lead up to International Volunteer Day (IVD) on 5 December, UNV invites citizens worldwide to be inspired by the winners’ stories and participate in the global voting for their favorite winner on 
onlinevolunteering.org.
