Throughout the year CERVIS activities were supported by an increasing collaboration with the European Parliament.
On June 29th the European Parliament Volunteering Interest Group met at the European Parliament hosted by Co-Chairs Michaela Šojdrová (EPP), Domenec Ruiz Devesa (S&D) and Irena Joveva (RENEW) with 25 participants from civil society to discuss the latest developments in European volunteering policy and to launch the #CERVIS MEP Volunteer “Job Shadowing” initiative.
In December, Domenec Devesa MEP (ES-S&D) and co-chair of the European Parliament Volunteering Interest Group, volunteered at the HUBHumanitaire in Brussels. Maria Walsh MEP (IE-EPP), also a member of the Volunteering Interest Group, regularly volunteered in 2022 in her constituency for a number of causes including women’s organisations, and those supporting refugees and people needing mental health support.
