Policy Framework

Norway has no policy framework that defines and regulates the transferability and recognition of skills and competencies acquired through volunteering.

Existing arrangements

Recognition of voluntary activities is closely linked to the recognition of the work of non-governmental organizations.

Norway participates in both Youthpass and Europass. Beyond this, Norway has no other arrangements or mechanisms contributing to the formal recognition of voluntary activities. Neither Europass or the Youthpass have been evaluated in Norway.
