December 2011

A team of online volunteers, coordinated by the Fundació Catalunya Voluntària, received the UNV Online Volunteering Award 2011 for their work on 'Peace Bag for EuroMed Youth'. The project was granted by the Anna Lindh Foundation through its call for proposals programme, and involved a wide range of organisations across the two shores of the Mediterranean.
