2012 blir et aktivt år for Spires internasjonale utvalg. Vi skal gjennomføre flere prosjekter, både i Norge, Malawi og Zambia. I tillegg er vi også på jakt etter flere samarbeidspartnere i Sør, og planlegger å undersøke mulighetene for potensielle partnerskap i Latin-Amerika. Høres dette ut som noe du kunne tenke deg å jobbe med?
Internasjonalt utvalg i Spire har engelsk som arbeidsspråk, og under kan du lese mer om hva de ser etter.
The international committee holds the primary responsibility for Spire’s international cooperation. In particular, we work to strengthen the cooperation between organizations in the global North and in the global South, through networking, partnerships and exchange programs.
Spire’s international committee is currently looking for new members. Our activities in 2012 range from planning and executing a youth exchange program with Youth Environment Network (YEN) Zambia; to planning and executing activities with Network for Youth Development (NfYD) in both Norway and Malawi. We will also be looking for new partner organizations in Latin-America.
With NfYD we are planning to visit each other’s AGMs and host two-day workshops on climate change in Norway and Malawi. Two participants from Spire and two from NfYD will be selected to conduct visits to the other organization. From Spire at least one of these participants will be from the international committee. Starting in August, Spire will have a youth exchange program with YEN Zambia. This involves two participants from Spire and two participants from YEN Zambia working for 6 months together, 3 of which in each country. The international committee in Spire will be responsible for the organizational planning of the three months the exchange team will spend in Norway. It will also be possible to take part in the exchange program itself. These are some of the activities the International Committee is currently planning.
Are you interested in joining the international committee? You need to have a good command of English, as this is our working language. We offer a nice working environment, interesting meetings and a good occasion to widen your understanding of North-South issues.
