C'est arrivé!

It's here - 2011 is officially the European Year of Volunteering.

We'll be joining the celebrations to highlight what volunteers do - a whopping 100 million of us across Europe - there will be films, exhibitions, media coverage and flagship projects.

But three-quarters of the European population do not do any volunteering. We want to get more people involved. Much of the detail of the events and activities for the year is yet to be planned, and we may well be coming to you for help to convince others to start volunteering. There will be no one better to explain how great volunteering can be.

But don't wait until the plans are announced - find something now.
