Our volunteer coordination engagement platform
Hast du dir schon einmal überlegt, neben der Schule, Uni oder deinem Job freiwillig bei einer Organisation in Österreich oder woanders mitzuhelfen? Volunteering & SDGs in Austria. No one should be left behind – spread the love
KFDWB acts also as a platform that provides people with the relevant knowledge and (business) skills required to alleviate global challenges at the local level. KFDWB motivates, empowers, and engages people to become part of the implementation of the SDGs process and to assume active roles in shaping their communities and societies, thus literally becoming development agents. We are focusing on a proactive and inclusive approach to develop digital competences. We think that if the digitalization is used correctly and by making its resources available to all users, it can be transformed into a multiplier of the good and an enabling factor for the creation of global justice and a more sustainable world.
Volunteerism – helping hands to impact people’s lives
Volunteering for sustainable development
We have seen that some solutions are already available in part, but many people are not informed and struggle to insert them into an overall picture and towards a goal. In this sense, we believe in the enormous power of connecting people and providing them with the right information, knowledge and tools. The 2030 Agenda is universal, applying to all countries and actors. That is why our – Volunteering Management Team – “Nachhaltige Entwicklung – Agenda 2030 / SDGs mit Schwerpunkt Digitalisierung und Jobs Skills in Österreich” is convinced of the necessity of making its objectives palpable for all strata of society and to involve all stakeholders.

A former trainee experience by KFDWB
… Based on my experience I can say yes. I would recommend it to students as well as to volunteers who are responsible, opened, innovative and flexible and who want to learn new things. The work environment is very challenging :-). But if you are a striver you can succeed :-)! It looks like in a private sector. If you want to experience that you can find some of their opportunities here or contact them via email.
