Volunteers have been an extremely important resource in all the major events and projects of Culture year.
Umeå2014 collaborated with the Västerbotten Idrottsförbund through the project Ideella krafter (“Non-profit power”). The project aims to create a long-term solution where volunteer assignments from Umeå organisations will be presented on a common platform that can live on far beyond 2014.
Volunteers at the Opening Weekend Our partner in organising the volunteers for the opening weekend was Humlan, who has lots of experience in working with and educating volunteers for the Umeå Open Festival. Around 200 people got involved as volunteers during the Opening Weekend. Many thanks to you!
