Dear Groupe de Pilotage,
2017 is coming to an end. With the new year and the construction of our Äerdschëff approaching, we would like to propose a redesign of the GP meetings and involve you to a greater extent.
The GP meetings will be held once per month, every second Tuesday of the month. Here are the dates for your diaries. All meetings will be held at CELL, unless otherwise advised:
Until now, the GP meetings have been very colourful talking groups where we could exchange and discuss ideas. In 2018, we want them to be more practical and based on four different working groups, each one with a specific set of tasks. The working groups are
1-CHANTIER PARTICIPATIF (led by Loïc)
2-COMMUNICATION (led by Agata)
3-FUNDING (led by Katy)
4-MATERIALS (led by Gaia)
1- CHANTIER PARTICIPATIF WG
This working group will be led by Loïc with the help of the Äerdscheff team and will mainly focus on the organization and coordination of the volunteers that will come to help us building. The main problems to solve are:
Volunteer camp design (space, chores rota, accommodation, daily schedule, phases of building)
Registration design (how to get people to sign up smoothly and with commitment – here there is an overlap with Communication WG)
Here the trello board previously created by Rodrigo, Nuno and Leo.
If you enjoy and have some experience organising groups, workshops, if you have some good contacts here in the region and you want to help us, join this group and coordinate with Loic and the Ä team!
2- COMMUNICATION WG
This working group will be led by Agata with the help of the whole Ä team and will mainly focus on reaching out to the volunteers and communicating with them. The main tasks will be finding the contacts of the different earthship groups around EU and world and involve them in our project.
If you enjoy and have some experience in communication and advertising and you want to help us, join this group and coordinate with Agata and the Ä team to advertise our project!
3- FUNDING WG
This group will be led by Katy with the help of the whole Ä team. The focus of this group will be securing funding and sponsorship, with emphasis on the post-construction time.
If you enjoy and you have some experience in writing funding bids (in French and English), or like communicating with a diversity of people, and you want to help us, join this group and coordinate with Katy and the Ä team.
This is the most practical group and will be led by Gaia with the help of the whole Ä team. The group will perform various tasks around preparing the building phase:
If you enjoy and have some experience with power tools and you want to do practical things, join this group and coordinate with Gaia and the rest of the Ä team.
Here you can find a google spreadsheet where you can subscribe to you r favourite group, you can also join more than one!
The Äerdschëff team would like to thank you for the interest shown during 2017 and your help during this long process.
We hope that you will support our project even more in the upcoming year!
We would like to wish you an amazing Christmas time and a great start of 2018!
Your Äerdschëff Team
