Belgrade, December 4 – On the eve of International Volunteer Day, the Responsible Business Forum and Smart Kolektiv have announced a competition for the National Volunteering Award 2020. The Volunteer Awards are presented with the aim of recognizing organizations and individuals who have dedicated their time and skills to improving the lives of other people.

“Volunteering connects people of different national and social statuses and provides an opportunity to build a better and more inclusive society. Volunteering makes a difference in people’s lives – both those who need help and those who provide it. That is why it is especially important that in these uncertain times we nurture and encourage universal human values, recognize and give recognition to those who tirelessly and selflessly advocate for a better society”, stated the organizers of the competition.

The National Volunteering Award 2020 will reward corporate volunteering programs organized by companies with the aim of involving employees in providing support to the community and programs organized by organizations with the aim of involving citizens. Within the special category Volunteer of the Year actions and efforts of individuals will be evaluated and awarded.
