Oxfam-Québec and SUCO – both members of the AQOCI – are pleased to invite you to the IVCO 2018 International Conference, the annual event of Forum, the most significant global network of International Volunteer Cooperation Organisations.
IVCO brings together leaders of international volunteering agencies from around the globe in a unique dialogue focusing on the challenges and opportunities currently facing international development volunteering.
This year’s theme is “Women and Youth: Bridging the Gap. Volunteering for Inclusive Development”.
IVCO takes place in a different city around the globe every year, and we are pleased to host the event in Montreal in October 2018! It is a great opportunity for the Inter-Council Network members that the event takes place in Canada this year!
As we think your participation is important to represent the Canadian international volunteering environment, the IVCO hosts are glad to waive the registration fees for one attendee of the Inter-Council Network and each of its members.
