The OKCon Call for Volunteers ended on 2nd June, 2013. Thank you for applying! The selected volunteers have been contacted and are ready to welcome you at OKCon. See you in Geneva!

Are you a team player passionate about the power of open knowledge?
Are you ready to make OKCon 2013 a unique experience?
Do you have good English speaking skills and are you outgoing, hard-working and 100% reliable?
We want to hear from you!

We are looking for highly motivated volunteers willing to join us to make OKCon 2013 a fantastic and invaluable experience.

We expect our volunteers to deliver professional work during 2-3 days (16th-18th September, 2013). In return, we offer an enlightening work environment, and the opportunity to connect with incredibly inspiring and like-minded people. Needless to say that we plan your work around your choice of talks.
Given the qualification for the profiles needed, those already in the Open Knowledge Foundation Task Force and other active members of the OKF community will be looked upon favourably.

If you are interested and available from 16th to 18th September 2013, please apply by filling out the form below. The deadline is Sunday, 2nd June at 23:59:59 GMT.
We look forward to receiving your application!


When will I be notified if I’ve been selected?

All applicants will be notified of their status in writing via e-mail as soon as possible. Applicants selected to participate will have three business days to reply by e-mail to the offer before the offer may be made to other qualified applicants.

Will volunteers receive a free ticket?

We will provide a free ticket to all selected participants who will volunteer at OKCon 2013. The Early Bird ticket sale will end on 23rd June – we’ll make sure to contact you as soon as possible in order to give you the time to purchase an Early Bird ticket if your proposal will not be selected.

I still have a question: who can I get in contact with?

You are welcome to email us at [email protected] if you need any help with your submissions or clarification on any part of this process.
