What type of volunteer positions are typically available?
There are a variety of volunteer opportunities for this one day event.
What if hundreds of citizens united, each putting in place the projects and changes they want to see in their city all on the same day?
That is the goal of 100in1Day, a social movement originating from Bogot , Colombia, which has inspired citizen-driven change on a significant scale, transforming cities over a 24 hour period. On June 7th, there will be at least 100 urban interventions taking place throughout Halifax using volunteers for every step - from planning to staging each intervention. Help lead the charge to transform our city by becoming a Citizen Activator.
Citizen Activator functions include:
Logistics:You are a natural event planner that likes being on the ball, managing, answering questions,giving instructions and trouble-shooting and as a resident, you know the city well. Logistics activators will manage the planning, logistics and delivery of the 100 in 1 Day event. Commit to all of the big day on June 7.
Workshops & Interventions:A natural host, you create a warm, safe, and comfortable space for conversation. You will empower participants to lead an urban intervention and ultimately facilitate the magic of 100 in 1, at workshops hosted in 2014. Workshop activators will manage the scheduling and hosting of the weekly workshops and provide support to Intervention leaders on June 7.
Outreach:You love meeting and talking to people, reaching out and raising awareness to things that are important to you, getting people excited about events, issues, or opportunities. You have your ear to theground, know a network of people, or are comfortable building it by reaching out to others. We want all walks of life to partake, and you know how to reach out to them! Outreach activators will research and help spread the word.
