Call for Host Organisation: Common Digital (R)evolution

Open Call for Host Organisation - Common Digital (R)evolution

Dear FYEG Member Organisations,

FYEG's Executive Committee would hereby like to announce the opening of a call for a host for the seminar “Common Digital (R)evolution” seminar, scheduled for the 11.9-17.9.2018. The aim of this activity is to increase young people's digital participation by developing an understanding of digital commons - in particular of the internet and its management.

Member Organisations are encouraged to apply!

We are in particular looking for an organisation that can offer examples of inspiring and innovative ways to campaign, in particular campaigning methods that take full advantage of the possibilities offered to us by the internet, by new participatory and accessible technologies, and by young people's motivation and creativity. Connection with other movements and organisations who are experienced in designing and carrying out successful campaigns online, and in using apps in the campaigning is welcome. 

If your organisation is interested in hosting the “Common Digital (R)evolution” seminar, submit an application until 18th October 2017 (midnight CET) by e-mail to project.manager@fyeg.org and pedja@fyeg.org

 

This application should contain:

  • motivation letter;
  • the resources of your organisation (human and other) that you are ready to invest in this event;
  • options for travel, accommodation, meeting venue and meals for 30participants; 
  • co-funding possibilities;
  • the resources of your organisation about topics of seminar (digital commons);
  • ideas for political actions;
  • a statement of willingness to host the digital commons seminar. 

 

Responsibilities of the host organisation:

  • to identify 3 persons from their organisation - Technical coordinator, Assistant, and Program Coordinator - that will be in constant communications with FYEG and responsible for specific area of work related to preparation, implementation and follow up of the event, and that are able to attend the event;
  • to help find the co-funding of the event (with assistance from FYEG office);
  • to arrange the accommodations, meeting place (plenary), meals (vegetarian and vegan) and refreshments for the live prep team meetings and for the event itself;
  • to arrange the entire visa and travelling related issues for the participants;
  • to arrange all the technical needs of the prep team, FYEG, participants or event itself. 

 

Rights of the local host organisation:

  • to promote this activity at local level (in the country where the organisation is situated) as its international activities in cooperation with FYEG. Any document sent out by project host has to have the logo of FYEG and the web site.
  • to organise side activity during the event that will support the interest of their organisation. This activity has to be prior approved by the prep team and FYEG.
  • to organise media event and use the presence of FYEG Executive Committee, based on prior approval by FYEG.

 

Organizing FYEG seminar is time and resource consuming, but it is a worthwhile effort and a well-invested time plus a great team-building experience for your organisation. FYEG is also planning to launch its campaign for the 2019 European elections, and we encourage the host organisation to make political use of this event.

The decision regarding the selected location will be communicated by 20th October 2017. FYEG strives for regional balance in the organisation of its events, and that will be an important criteria during the selection - together with the quality of the application.

For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us on the above-mentioned addresses.

Best wishes,

FYEG Executive Committee
