Call for Prep Team: Pizza & Write-a-thon for Activists

The Federation of Young European Greens and Activist Handbook are announcing an open call for a member of the preparatory team for Pizza and Write-a-Thon for Activists planned to take place in a hybrid format in December 2021.

A write-a-thon is an intense, sprint-like team work activity that lasts for a limited amount of time and produces clear written outputs. In this case we produce condensed, useful and beautifully compiled resources that can support an international community of activists as contribution to Activist Handbook, a Wikipedia-style collaborative manual for activists. 

Pizza and Write-a-Thon will bring together Young Greens and activists to amplify and make knowledge on digital organising, democratisation of organisations, organisational culture and more available and accessible through useful and practical articles for our peer activists from all over the world. Because by enabling change-makers to exchange knowledge and experience we can make this world a better place!

We are looking for ONE young activist to join forces with the rest of  the preparatory team composed of FYEG’s Project Manager and two members of the Activist Handbook. Prep-team members should speak English, be available during the preparation period, be responsible about fulfilling their tasks, be committed to the aim of the activity and FYEG’s values, and be familiar with non-formal education methods. Most of all, they should be dedicated to the successful implementation of this event, as well as wanting to have fun learning hybrid event organising!

Main responsibilities of the Prep-Team (PT): 

  • Active participation in and commitment to the preparation work prior the event (October - December 2021)

  • Preparation and facilitation of the programme of the Write-a-Thon: designing and facilitating sessions, 

  • Event dissemination and networking;

  • Live participation on the day of the event for hybrid hosting of participants and prep team meeting (1 day before and 1 day after) in December 2021, exact dates tbd;

  • Support the finalisation of the outputs of the event.

Being a prep-team member for the Pizza and Write-a-thon will offer you the chance to engage with the FYEG international network community of activists, gain experience in hosting hybrid events and in non-formal education online methods, and of course fun and pizza!

Apply now to join the Preparatory Team by filling in THIS FORM. The deadline for submitting online applications is September 25th at 23:59 CET.

The festival is organised by the FYEG in cooperation with the European Greens and Activist Handbook and it’s the third and final activity of the year-long Youth Rebuilds a Brave New Europe project supported by the European Youth Foundation of Council of Europe and the European Greens.
