The forum’s agenda will cover international volunteer organizations’ activities, the role of corporate responsibility in supporting civil initiatives, environmental volunteering, education, healthcare and emergencies. 

The symbol of the forum is a DNA fragment, embodying the “kindness gene.” The gene is inherent in everyone, regardless of gender, age, nationality, and other distinctive features.

The forum will become one of the largest international events that will unite representatives of the global volunteer community. Representatives from more than 30 countries, as well as delegates from the regions, will participate in the event.
