The Catalan Federation of Social Volunteers , together with the City Council of Girona, is launching the week of volunteering in Girona from 21 to 25 May. The aim of this day is to make visible the work carried out throughout the year by volunteering in Girona and to recognize this work that often goes unnoticed. At the same time, it is also intended to turn the city into a meeting point for all the entities of the Girona region to live a festive week in the city.
The activities offered by the Volunteer Week are very diverse and some have been designed especially for those dates, while others are part of the usual activity of the entities that offer them, and have moved on date to be able to fit them in this week.
Different activities such as film festivals, walks, open days or the awards ceremony of the 9th Stories Contest are some of the activities that will fill the city so that the world of associationism and volunteering live closely. All the acts will be open to the public and most of them free.
