For International Volunteer Day 2020, the President of the United Nations General Assembly HE Volkan Bozkir recorded a video message for volunteers all around the world. To be able to share his 92 second video message in Turkish language (with subtitles) we are in need of an Online Volunteer to decode his speech (create the text, original: English), translate the text from English to Turkish and add time stamps to the text. Later it will be transformed into a subtitle file by communication colleagues. Important note: the video will be shared with the Online Volunteer privately and it shall not be shared with other parties before the official publication date.

    The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) Programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide. The UNV Regional Office for Europe and CIS provides oversight and strategic guidance to the UNV Field Units in the region and is accountable for the placement of UN Volunteers mobilized for UN Agencies, Funds, and Programmes focused on peace, development and humanitarian needs. In December 2020, one of priority countries of the region – Turkey – will conduct International Volunteer Day (IVD). It is held each year on 5 December to promote volunteering activities, acknowledge the added value of volunteers, and benefits in order to increase the participation to volunteering programs. This event will be co-leaded by National Volunteer Committee of Turkey and UNV with the support of GIZ and the Ministry of Youth and Sports. Elaboration of the preparatory event materials as well as coverage of the event that will consist of different virtual activities is critically important to raise visibility of opportunities that volunteerism brings to the country and of the volunteers which input into Sust. Dev. Agenda is vital in 2020 and beyond.
