The FIVB Heroes campaign plays a crucial role in the global promotion of FIVB‘s social
engagement, with the FIVB Heroes being the faces of the new partnership for develop-
ment and peace between FIVB and the United Nations. A large part of the alliance consists
in raising awareness of the UN Millennium Development Goals, UN themes and issues of
common interest at FIVB tournaments and in the framework of the FIVB Heroes campaign.
The cooperation will also be realized through the implementation of joint development and
humanitarian projects, in collaboration with the national Volleyball federations in countries
where FIVB tournaments will be staged, as well as with relevant UN organizations.
