FAIVE can offer actors a place for exchanging practices and amassing knowledge on the recognition of the commitments of Volontariats Internationaux d’Echange et de Solidarité (VIES – International Exchange and Solidarity Volunteering).

The recognition of international volunteer and solidarity commitments is intended to highlight the gains and human, social and professional benefits that can be developed during a volunteering experience.

FAIVE has become the place to exchange practices and produce knowledge on this theme. 

Il se décline sur deux axes :

  • Acting: a bi-annual call for initiatives
  • Exchanging and sharing: the organisation of a yearly event, during International Volunteering Day on the 5th of December, as well as themed workshops that allow key players to meet and exchange ideas.

FAIVE provides an online forum, a resource space and a space dedicated to calls for initiatives, now an integral part of the forum. Since 2011, FAIVE’s call for initiatives has supported 20 associations in highlighting the value of commitments with information action and sensitising, studies and capitalisation and organising of meet ups and events.

The Forum’s actors:

  • Volunteering and international solidarity associations
  • Researchers and professors
  • Initiators
