The global health and economic crises are forcing nonprofit organisations in Europe and beyond to adapt to unprecedentedly strenuous conditions. One of the greatest needs for nonprofit organisations has been reorganizing work plans and budgets to the new reality, with most of the work being transferred online and most of physical events, that are key to nonprofit work, being cancelled.
In response to this challenge, the Green European Foundation is putting forth a workshop on organisational resilience, aiming to assist civil society actors and grassroots movements working on topics such as education on Europe and European values, green transition and Green Deal, sustainability, social justice, gender equality and energy transition, to find solutions to their needs.
The workshop will take place on October 16, 2020, from 14-15:30pm.
Throughout the 1.5h workshop, participants will discover some key strategies to build organisational resilience in the aftermath of COVID-19, observe case studies of best practice of strategy, budget and work plan adaptation, team and volunteers leadership during COVID-19.
There will be two speakers sharing their insights, followed by questions from the moderator and audience. The discussion will be followed by open space sessions on topics that the participants will be invited to join, depending on their interest, and exchange about the best practices and challenges that they face in their adaptation efforts. We aim to have participants representing small and medium-sized non-profits, activists and representatives of grassroots movements.
Marischa Weiser is the coordinator and co-creator of horizontal school, an initiative that creates learning spaces which emphasize empathetic and participatory learning styles. She also coordinates the MitOst project ‘Tools for Citizens,’ which aims at supporting individuals and organisations with a ‘Do it yourself’ approach. The second speaker will be shortly announced.
Please note: we will be selecting a maximum of 20 participants for this workshop to ensure an environment more conducive to comfortable, lively and fruitful exchanges.
The implementation of the “Resilience and Resource Mobilisation Workshops” project within the framework of the Bosch Alumni Network and the Green European Foundation was made possible by the International Alumni Center and the financial support of the European Parliament.
