MicroVolunteeringDay2016Microvolunteering Day is now in its third successful year, and is a unique opportunity for people to join together in a synchronised effort to demonstrate the empowering potential of the microvolunteering concept. This year Microvolunteering Day is on Friday 15 April 2016.

So what is microvolunteering? It’s a way of making the world a better place via bite-sized action, sometimes in as little as 10 minutes. You don’t even have to get out of your pyjamas or your favourite armchair! You can travel the world – take some time out of your lunch break to map Genghis Khan’s tomb!

Don’t fancy Mongolia? If you visit the Microvolunteering Day website or Facebook page you can choose from over 800 micro-actions ranging from writing a postcard to someone who needs cheering up, to recording some information about a local tree for the Treezila project which is attempting to make a monster map of every tree in the United Kingdom. There aren’t too many trees in Glasgow currently on the Treezila map so why not get your tape measure out and let’s show everyone what a Dear Green Place it is. You don’t even really need to check the list – grab a rubbish sack and clear the litter outside your house or pop to the shops for an elderly neighbour.

Find a cause you care about and a few spare moments in your life and make a difference. Take a photo or share your story via Twitter using #MicroDay or on Facebook using #MicroDay
