as a facilitator at Youth Week

Application deadline: January 20, 2021

See below for applying without a Gmail account

Our 2021 Youth Week, which runs 30 July–8 August, offers young adults the opportunity to explore career options, learn from young experts working across this region and develop their own innovative projects. If you’re a young professional from Central or Eastern Europe and your background is in any of the following areas—or if you’re working towards the common good in another area—we want to hear from you:

  • Sustainable entrepreneurship & living

  • Sustainability, agricultural policy or climate action

  • Human rights (with a focus on right to healthy environment, climate migration; human rights issues in the UN)

  • Mindfulness & meditation techniques

  • Project management (fundraising, design thinking, public speaking, goal-setting etc)

Facilitators are young professionals in any industry who can speak to their experience in the workforce. They contribute to participants' understanding of the way questions of sustainability, human rights and entrepreneurship can be tackled in everyday careers. As a facilitator, you will prepare a workshop or join a panel on one of these topics. You should expect to be on site for a full day. We offer a modest honorarium as well as travel, food and lodging.

You can find more information in the Facilitator Application Info Sheet here.

If you would like to contribute and inspire young adults, please apply here by January 20 or contact our content coordinator directly.

Important note: Our submission form requires a Gmail account; if you do not have Gmail, please apply by sending your letter of motivation directly to facilitator@careersinthecommongood.com.
