„Be the change you want to see in the world” – Mahatma Gandhi


 If you spend some of your free time doing something worthwhile, it makes you more of you. It initiates a change in you that develops your positive qualities, virtues and self-awareness. In return, you get the feeling of belonging to the community, new opportunities open up, new relationships are built, and friendships are formed.


Volunteering makes your life fuller and happier - and it also looks good on your CV! 


EUSA, European University Sports Association, organizes European Universities Championships (EUC) in odd-numbered years at different venues for each sport discipline. In 2023, EUC will be held in 16 places having over 20 sports across Europe, of which Miskolc will host the badminton and water polo events between July 13 and 19, 2023. We expect the participation of about 500 athletes and officials from 40 universities from 20 countries, while 150 volunteers will participate enthusiastically in the organization.


We can say with full conviction that volunteers are the key participants at any multisport event. In addition to carrying out responsible tasks in each organizational area, their mediating role is decisive, as they are the faces of the event, providing cheerfulness and hospitality to our participating guests.
