The Volunteering Capital of 2018

In 2018 Aarhus is the European Volunteering Capital. London, Lisbon and Barcelona have previously had this title and in 2017 is Sligo, in Ireland, the Capital of Volunteering.

The title is given each year to a European municipality which has been particularly notable in terms of volunteering. In Aarhus’s case, the jury emphasizes that Aarhus City Council has adopted a citizenship policy that you measure and follow up in the city.

It also highlights the integration that takes place between the municipality, the culture and the social welfare areas, where volunteers help to set the agenda on how municipalities and civil society can cooperate.
