The International Volunteer Forum aims to bring young leaders across the globe onto one platform and inculcate a deeper understanding of sustainable development goals. This takes them on a life-long journey of capacity building through simulations, panel discussions, workshops, and plenary sessions. The forum will also be joined by a large number of Government representatives, Diplomats, UN Officials, Business leaders, NGO representatives & civil society stakeholders.

We are expecting more than 500 changemakers who are driven towards community enhancement through their dedicated projects and innovative ideas. Through our close contact with the Government offices, we will have official voices from more than 20 countries. Representatives from the UN & Mayor offices from more than 50 countries will join us as a part of our local community engagement program through volunteerism.
