Living on the Edge is an event built for changemakers, by changemakers. Like in the real world, we can’t count on much help from states or society at large: what we don’t build ourselves does not get built. So, if you have some time and smarts to spare, please help us build an epic #LOTE. Two good starting points are the community call (every Friday at 11.00 a.m. CET on Google Hangout) and the workspace on this site.
Fellow #LOTErs are volunteering to coordinate work around most tasks. Choose one or more of the following activities, and click on the picture of its coordinator to get in touch. Remember: they are not bosses, they are there to help you get started. If you want to help on something no one seems to be exploring yet, contact Noemi.
All this is voluntary work – we are all doing this on our own free time and no money is involved, though we do hope to be able to fund someone to travel to Matera. If you are interested, we are happy to give you a Linkedin recommendation (profile).
