Experts, supporters and shapers of the Pro Bono movement will be gathering in Budapest in October 2017 to attend the 2nd European Pro Bono Summit. After several successful Global Pro Bono Summit and the 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 by examining the role of Pro Bono in corporate leadership development programmes, presenting a European marketplace 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 planning to provide new learning opportunities and a specific European flavor for all participants. We hope in addition to those with previous experience in the pro bono field that new organisations will join us and that new techniques will be presented that will serve useful for anyone.

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


The event is supported by BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt, Pro Bono Lab, Taproot Foundation and several dedicated corporations.

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

Presentations, panel debates and 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 through a marketplace during the program. We expect equal number of corporate and pro bono intermediaries as participants thus the European Summit will be a 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.
