European Pro Bono Summit18-20 October 2017, Budapest13/07/2017

The Gathering

Experts, supporters and shapers of the Pro Bono movement from all over Europe will be gathering in Budapest in October 2017 to attend the 2nd European Pro Bono Summit. After several successful Global Pro Bono Summit and first European Pro Bono Summit in Paris in October 2016 the event is aiming at providing useful content for both newcomers and experienced Pro Bono practitioners through examining the role of Pro Bono in the corporate leadership development programmes, presenting a European market place for corporates and intermediary organisations or creating local or multinational pro bono programmes.

We are building on the experiences of the previous Pro Bono Summits still planning to provide new learning opportunities and a specific European flavor for all participants. We hope next to the experienced ones also those organisations will join us who are new in the pro bono field and will learn new techniques.


The two-day event is organised by Volunteering Hungary (ÖKA) in partnership with GE Hungary and active participation of the Global Pro Bono Network members.

The event is supported by the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt and Taproot Foundation.

The Summit is bringing together stakeholders from both the corporate and the NGO world in Europe and beyond.


The 2 days program will provide participants and supporters ample opportunities for acquiring new techniques, showcasing best practice and growing their talent development techniques and their social network.

Presentations, panel debates, breakout sessions will help participants to deep dive into the different techniques of corporate pro bono services. Next to this we will actively help participants to make connections and network thought a marketplace offer throughout the program. We expect equal number of corporate and pro bono intermediaries as participants thus the European Summit will be an unique place for corporate – NGO partnership building and co-creation. We aim to connect European level CR, HR, PR leaders and managers of corporations with intermediary organisations (from all regions of Europe) that are creating first class pro bono programs in the different countries of Europe.

Join us in developing and celebrating the European Pro Bono movement! Connect with like minded professionals and experts, learn about innovative techniques and best practices, and engage with our keynote speakers and European change makers.

Learn and grow your pro bono program locally and internationally.
