Reimagining volunteerism is a concept that aims to change the way we think about and approach volunteerism. It involves looking at new and innovative ways to create opportunities for people to volunteer, and also to explore new ways of addressing global issues through volunteering. This could include new forms of volunteerism such as virtual volunteering, new areas for volunteerism such as social entrepreneurship, and new partnerships between different sectors to increase the impact of volunteerism. Reimagining volunteerism also aims to make volunteering more inclusive, so that people from all backgrounds and walks of life can get involved, and leverage technology to enhance and expand the impact of volunteering. The ultimate goal of reimagining volunteerism is to make it more effective and efficient in addressing the global challenges and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. The concept of Reimagining volunteerism is highlighted by the need to fully integrate volunteering into the development agenda to better address today’s most pressing challenges and to recognize the current state and future potential of volunteering. It also highlights the need to create new, innovative and next-generation models of volunteering, foster inclusivity, measure volunteering to contribute to a holistic understanding of engagement in SDG implementation, and ensure the safety, security, and well-being of volunteers.
