There is widespread agreement that the future development agenda has to see some radical shifts to better engage people in their own, their community’s and country’s development. Enhanced mechanisms for civic engagement are needed to enable new discussions, negotiations and decisions. This report shows, using a body of knowledge collected through case studies,that volunteerism provides a key channel for this engagement from the local through to the national and global contexts. As local to global levels become more linked through new governance actors, so too volunteerism is adapting and changing; active and global citizens are already engaged in different ways, at different levels, to address core traditional and emerging governance issues.This report has identified key atrategies, challnges and opportunities for volunteerism, focused on three pillars of governance –voice and participation, accountability and responsiveness –where volunteers have shown impact. Specific volunteer actions and strategies illustrate the diverse ways in which volunteers engage in invited spaces, open up closed spaces or claim new spaces. Invited spaces are those where governance actors invite participation by citizens or beneficiaries.
