The European Alliance for Volunteering was established on 8th of February 2013 in Brussels and WOSM is one of its founding members. Find more about it at are just beginning our work and are looking forward to advocating for your interests with the European Institutions and all relevant stakeholders in our field.


Currently we are looking for volunteers to help us design our logo. We would like our logo to represent what is best in the volunteer spirit: generosity, commitment, care, respect, diversity, ownership. We would also like the logo to reflect the origin of EAV as an outcome of the European Year of Volunteering and the P.A.V.E. outcomes (you can learn more about P.A.V.E. at

We are therefore launching a competition for an EAV logo. Entries should be sent by 5th May 2013 via e-mail to in one of the following formats: JPEG, GIF, PDF, or EPS.

Winning entry will serve as the official logo of the EAV, entrants must therefore ensure that their entries are not similar to existing logos or copyrighted images.

The winning entry becomes property of the EAV. The winning entrant assigns all intellectual property rights (including trademark and copyright) in the winning logo to the EAV. Entrants are not entitled to any compensation or cost reimbursement.

The winner will be announced on 15th May 2013 and the prize is the participation in the event YOUropa Conference in London, UK, 26th-27th June 2013.

Thank you for your help and thank you for your work wherever you are!
