the “VISION PAPER”, that serves as main development, harvesting and communication tool. A “Foresight paper”, bringing out the aspects important in shaping the future development of transnational volunteering in Europe, including aspects of past, present and future within each of the relevant themes, is compiled first to inspire the thinking during the conference.
