In this free inspiration session on the 28th of June at 10:00, we invited Rachida el Alami, Project Manager at Volunteer Centre Amsterdam, Rita Molenkamp-Szucs, Policy Advisor at the Municipality of Amsterdam, and Joel Dori, Startup Liaison for the Municipality of Amsterdam to discuss how to best involve businesses to volunteer in your municipality.
We discuss the role of the municipality, the volunteer centre, and Deedmob, look at the benefits and corporate volunteering, and how this solution can be implemented in other municipalities!
