2020 Volunteer Application (EN)
Pint of Science Belgium is looking for volunteers to join our various teams across the country. Typically, each team is responsible for organising 1 event per night during the 2020 festival (11-13 May 2020). Generally, each team focuses on one general topic among those covered by the festival (see here:
). In practice, the team is responsible for finding the venue, contributing to develop the programme of the festival, liaising with speakers, arranging logistics, promoting the festival, and managing its resources. Each team reports to and receives support from their local City Coordinator as well as the Central Team managing the festival at national level.
All volunteers should:
- be available during the 3 nights of the festival (11-13 May 2020) at least from 6pm on.
- agree to use the free application SLACK (
) to communicate with other volunteers.
PS: you do not need to be a scientist to volunteer. Everybody is welcome!
