Plan IOV 2020 has twenty key goals that have been grouped into three strategic goals. These are:
- Further development of the structure of the organization. The IOV can help achieve this, e.g. by the addition of a full-fledged youth commission to the already existing commissions.
- Ensure the financial future of IOV. This can be achieved, e.g. by seeking financial opportunities with governments, honorary members of the organization, or companies with an interest in Folk Culture.
- Establish communication as a key part of operations. This includes, e.g. the launch of a new IOV website and IOV newsletter.
