Why this Tweet Action?

In spite of the current deep crisis of values, it’s important to communicate to public opinion that European solidarity is an up and coming value.

The communication action wants to highlight the important contribution of the UE aid volunteers through their actions in the field to European solidarity and how this experience contributes to create an European volunteer’s model.

"Founded on the values of solidarity and mutual trust, volunteerism transcends all cultural, linguistic and geographic boundaries. By giving their time and skills without expectation of material reward, volunteers themselves are uplifted by a singular sense of purpose."
 (Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Message for the International Volunteer Day for Economic and Social Development, 5 December 2012)
