Transcript of European University for Volunteering

History and Idea
Founded as Universidad Europea del Voluntariado (UEV), 1993 in Bruselas, during plenary sessions of member organizations of AVE (Association pour le Voluntariat à l'acte gratuit en Europe) in cooparation with representatives of universities in Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, Spain.
The European Volunteer University bases its activities on the ideas of the medieval travelling university, thereby offering a university education on topics related to civil engagement and civil society to volunteers and professionals working in the area of volunteering; this happens in interdisciplinary lectures and seminars taking place in irregular intervals in different countries.
