Dear alumni representatives,
We would like to invite you to this year’s alumni representatives' meeting. The meeting will take place in Berlin from Friday evening 9th till Sunday Lunchtime 11th June 2017. Since we expect wonderful weather and good ideas and exchange need free space, this year we would like to get outdoors and closer to nature. By the motto “Walk and Talk” we would like to head out and focus on the relevant strategic questions for the alumni work.
We want to exchange on current developments of alumni work within the MitOst-network and discuss the following questions with you: How can we create meaningful and impact-oriented alumni work? How can we foster topic related alumni work? How can MitOst support the alumni work within a growing network? What are future oriented tools and concrete instruments that support alumni in changing our societies for the better? How can the Berlin MitOst office and volunteers work together in the new thematic action fields of MitOst? Which structures and proposals do we need for this?
We invite you to share your perspective on these questions which are especially important for us. To improve preparation for the meeting, we would like to ask you to bring in your ideas already during the registration.
We invite from each programme / country one representative, please note that places are limited. You receive this mail, because you are in the alumni representatives list of MitOst, if you are more people representing the alumni of your programme or your country, please decide together for one person to come. This year, the MitOst Camp for members of MitOst will take place in Berlin in parallel with the alumni meeting. As we have similar topics on the agenda, we would like to take the opportunity to exchange our ideas on certain subjects together and give you the chance to get to know more people within the MitOst network. We are looking forward to good networking!
The alumni representatives meeting starts on Friday evening and finishes on Sunday in the afternoon. During the day we gou out on excursions to the surroundings of Berlin.
Afternoon and evening meals will be provided by MitOst. Unfortunately, we cannot provide accommodation. However, if needed, within the framework of the MitOst Network we can help you find a private sleeping place aka Couchsurfing, there is a new Facebook group "MitOst Couchsurfing" for your needs/offers.
