Would you like to be part of a digital IFSA delegation and/or volunteer in the organizing team at an international forestry event on Non-timber forest products? Are you interested in communications, social media coverage of a conference, language support, or technology-based problem-solving? Then this open call may hold several interesting opportunities for you!

IFSA is an official co-organizer at the Forest Harvest: Community-based NTFP Enterprises (CBNE) Forum from June 1 – 5 2021 and there are several opportunities for IFSA members to get involved as part of the digital delegation or as volunteers in different functions. The opportunities of engagement for participants are manifold and include the possibilities to:

  • Be part of a team coordinating a forum session
  • Creating content for and managing the communication channels
  • Cover social media of single sessions, side activities, or the whole forum
  • Support the language team: translating of texts, creating subtitles (mostly searched: Indian languages/Nepalese/Indonesian and other Indonesian languages/Vietnamese/Filipino/Khmer/Thai)
  • Participate in or coordinate a Hackathon: small, country-based teams work on IT-based problem-solving for the NTFP sector → searched are team members and Liaisons towards the forum organizers
  • Support the Daily Forum Newsletter publication: this is meant to be a daily summary, possibly similar to this example from IFSA’s amazing APFW 2019 delegation members.

If you are interested in any of the above tasks please mark so in the open call application. It is possible to engage in more than one task, but also to only register as a normal delegate, who could participate in event sessions without further tasks. With IFSA being an official co-organizer, all tickets for IFSA members will be free of charge, and at the end of the delegation there will be a certificate of participation for IFSA delegates.

Deadline for application is May 23rd 11:59 pm UTC !
