Volunteers assist EPD’s activities and are indispensable for the well-functioning of EPD.

They will also have the chance to build up their network by engaging with civil society organizations, policy makers, and international organizations. Volunteers are an integral part of the EPD team and are allowed to participate in meetings, conferences and workshops.
