We would love you to be involved in helping us organise the Congress as there is a lot of work to do! There are many ways to help, so if you do not want to be part of a working group, you may be interested in running a workshop at the Congress, or you have other brilliant ideas.
During the Congress there will be space for
electing a new Steering Committee
open space for discussions and getting to know each other
finding common positions and vote on them
a city tour
a lot more
From the 8th to 14th of August 2010
In Berlin, Germany.
It will be held at the Heinrich-Böll-Foundation (the German Green Foundation) which offers its location to us. This is in the center of Berlin! We will sleep close by in either a gym or (if you pay for it) in a hostel.
How to get there?
That is your own choice - but of course you should chose the greenest way possible!
In general, you will have to pay for your own ticket. There are lots of possibilities how you can fundraise for yourself. More details can be found soon If you live in a country, that is not called "industrialized" you may apply to a central fund, which is extremely limited, from January 15th onwards. The application includes a motivation letter outlining why and how you can contribute to the Congress.
