Strategic Plan 2022-2027
Inspiring Global Citizens was developed through a series of workshops and stakeholder consultations, and an analysis of key issues and challenges of international volunteering. It builds on the findings of the first independent evaluation of UCDVO, Looking Back, Moving Forward (2021).
In 20 years we have achieved much as an organisation – we have connected communities and had a transformative impact on the lives of many. Learning from our past, and preparing for future, this strategic plan represents UCDVO’s vision to evolve and develop as an organisation and inspire active global citizens.
The three key objectives of the plan include:
- A vibrant space in UCD for volunteering, collaboration and learning.
A community of active and responsible global citizens
A sustainable, effective and networked organisation.
