Institutions and the not-for-profit sector keep working on the issue of the measurement of voluntary work. To this end, on June 15th the Province of Treviso together with the Provincial Liaison Body on Volunteering organised a Conference on the economic valorisation of voluntary work, at the headquarters of the Province.
The conference was opened by the President of the Province of Treviso, Leonardo Muraro, the councilor for social policies of the Province of Treviso, Paolo Speranzon. Renzo Razzano, Vice-President of CEV – European Volunteer Centre and Tania Cappadozzi, in charge of the MESV (Measurement of the Economic and Social Value of Voluntary Work) at the Italian National Institute of Statistics (ISTAT) also participated in the programme.
In addition, the ILO Manual on the Measurement of Volunteer Work has been published on the website of the national coordination body of the Management Committees of the special funds for volunteering, the Consulta Nazionale of Co.GE.
