Project details

This is a unique opportunity to assist in the World Federalist Movement's XXV World Congress celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Movement!  The Congress is charged with forming the fundamental policies that will guide the work of our Movement as a whole.

As a Congress Volunteer you will assist in the logistics of the meetings, attend the Public Symposium at the Palais des Nations (Geneva, Switzerland) and the commemorative ceremony in Montreux.

This volunteer opportunity will allow in-depth exposure to the governance structure and work of a vibrant membership-based non-governmental organization, including our project on the International Criminal Court, the genocide preventive norm of Responsibility to Protect and UN Security Council Reform. In addition,  it will offer opportunities for interaction with members from all over the world.

Volunteers will report to the Executive and Membership Assistant.  Please note that some remuneration may be available for qualified volunteers.
