The event is available via webcast at:

On IVD 2012, we celebrate our commitment and hope for a better world. The main focus of IVD 2012 is awareness of and recognition for volunteers and volunteer organizations. The purpose is to recognise this commitment, to inform people about the impact of volunteering on peace and sustainable development, and to applaud volunteers for their dedication and impact.

On December 5, 2012, AARP New York, AARP International, and the United Nations Volunteer program joined to celebrate, recognize, and raise awareness of the invaluable contributions all volunteers within our organizations make in their communities and globally.  AARP has fostered volunteer efforts at the national, state, and local levels that have improved the lives of current and future generations.
