A little help from everyone...

For many environmental efforts, a few minutes of help from lots of people is the key. We need you to contact the events that you attend and encourage them to be green. As a customer - buying a ticket or registering for a conference - you have vastly more influence than a phone call from an environmental organization. With your help - and only with your help - we'll be able to spread our green tools to events everywhere! See our Green Travel Guide, which includes a checksheet you can fill out and hand to whoever takes suggestions at every event you attend!

Our monthly newsletter is a great way to remember us, as you register for new events throughout the year.

We have some great projects.

Some of these would make a great class project or internship:

  • Work on our Greening Guide. This will help many environmental groups to encourage festivals & conferences to be green in countless ways.
    • research
    • web design
  • Design a t-shirt
  • Help us build a bulletin board system for connecting people who want to get more active at events.
  • Blog for us. Search for related discussion groups and websites, and spread the word!
  • Proof-reading & user interface testing. We always have documents needing proof-reading. You must be a novice to do the best interface testing -- we always need new people who've never seen the site to take a half hour and try it out.
  • Ally Outreach: Tell all the other environmental groups about us.
  • Media Outreach: Research & contact appropriate magazines.
  • Encouraging all online "Calendars of Events" to emphasize green events.
  • Speakers Outreach: Speakers go from conference to conference. Some of them would love to make the conferences greener. Help us contact them.
  • Intern Search. If you are a college student, help us find professors, classes and students interested in our project.

And some key longer-term roles...

The roles below are for a mix of volunteers and interns. Some may lead to paying jobs (outreach & grant writing in particular.)

Outreach Team We need folks to work on outreach to both events and sponsors. There are many ways that these roles can be sub-divided.

  • Regional Carpool "Evangelists," one or two people in each city to contact area festivals.
  • Issue Carpool "Evangelists," outreach to events in your area of interest: animal rights, peace, musical style, anything!
  • Contact Festivals, or Academic Conferences, or Environmental Events.
  • Fostering activist connections in the Peace Movement.

Graphics, Design & Web Design

  • Web Page Design, including Event Greening Guide.
  • Newsletter Editor.
  • User Interface. New learners are welcome.
  • T-Shirt Design. We have some appropriate and wildly inappropriate ideas for environmental t-shirts, awaiting your graphic inspiration.
  • INTERN: Great portfolio or class opportunity.

Events Team

  • Each region needs people to represent SpaceShare at various events. Meet lots of great people!
