What do you like about beeing a ChangeNOW volunteer?
Everything! I loved loved loved helping inspiring people in their most authentic moments before stage. I was so inspired by all of them. I loved the adrenaline of staying on time and working with the backstage team instructions. I loved the volunteers I met, all beautiful and heart opened people. I loved every moment of it.

Being part of the whole dream team. Discovering the backstage of such an event. Feeling useful. Making friends!
Mélanie, ChangeNOW 2020
The team's vibes and the experience itself ! Everyone was forthcoming. There was a very positive energy. I also felt like I learned a lot in a short time frame.
Bianca, ChangeNOW 2021
The responsibility. Partaking in the effort to make the summit happen. Having a peek at the machinery. The camaraderie. Engaging with the founders.
Joris, ChangeNOW 2018, 2020 & 2021
I really loved this experience. I loved being with people who care about our planet, feeling the hope, and supporting this event in which I recognize myself. The team was extremely nice, always smiling even if exhausted.
It was also very nice to have the possibility to exchange roles sometimes to see the whole summit. Thank you so much for everything

Thank you to our amazing team of volunteers!
For each mission, we will define specific criteria. In addition to motivation, these may include availability or, in some cases, know-how. The information provided by the candidates when they apply will allow us to identify future volunteers. No preparation is necessary!
Regarding the yearly positions, the candidate can choose to apply for the one(s) he/she likes.
For the event positions, the candidate cannot specifically choose his/her mission but we will obviously take into account his/her aspirations, availability and know-how so that each volunteer can live an experience that corresponds to him/her. Of course, our proposal can be refused.
The volunteer will have to co-sign voluntary agreement with ChangeNOW Communities.
