The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. Volunteerism is a powerful means of engaging people in tackling development challenges, and it can transform the pace and nature of development. Volunteerism benefits both societies at large and the individual volunteer by strengthening trust, solidarity, and reciprocity among citizens, and by purposefully creating opportunities for participation.
UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for the recognition of volunteers, working with partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing an increasing number and diversity of volunteers, including experienced UNV volunteers, throughout the world.
UNV embraces volunteerism as universal and inclusive, and recognizes volunteerism in its diversity, as well as the values that sustain it: free will, commitment, engagement, and solidarity.
The Communications Team conducts coherent communications efforts to highlight the contributions of UNV, UN Volunteers, and the value of volunteerism for peace and development around the world.
The consultancy will focus on designing a new package of promotional materials within the existing UNV brand book, aiming to unify and streamline the visual identity of UNV promotional materials.
