About Us

The Association

The Association named “European University for Volunteering (EUV)” is non-profit Association in the sense of Art. 60 et seq. of the Swiss Civil Code, based in Basel, Switzerland.

The EUV 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 field of volunteering; this happens in interdisciplinary lectures and seminars taking place at irregular intervals. It was established by the “Association pour le Volontariat à l'acte gratuit en Europe (AVE)”, created in 1993.

Therefore the Association:
  • Transfers the implementation of an EUV event to local organising institutions;
  • Provides local organising institutions with support in implementing an EUV event;
  • Maintains an archive on past EUV events;
  • Is not profit-orientated and does not pursue commercial interests.

Board of Directors

The Board represents the Association externally. The Board evaluates applications for the implementation of an EUV event and decides on the transfer procedure to the local organising institutions.
