Zero Waste, Cleaning & Decoration

Decoration at OuiShare Fest Paris 2016
This team has one main job which is keeping the entire venue neat and tidy and make sure it looks welcoming for attendees.
Areas concerned:
Tasks include:
  • Signage (printing and putting up banners at the entrance and the main rooms, the toilets, etc.).
  • Further decoration tasks in the main and the secondary spaces.
  • Cleaning, whenever necessary.
  • Tidying up the space plus encouraging people to keep it that way.
  • Dealing with any issues that may arise, like fixing any piece of furniture that may break down, or informing area leaders and look for help when facing more difficult problems.
  • Collectig information about waste and impact assessment.
Ideally, you will create Shifs that allow people to have breaks and enjoy the rest of the event. Again 3-hour shifts work well for most people. Volunteers who are devoted to just this are can do 2 shifts of 3 hours each per day, whereas people contributing to other teams can do just one.

Team Requirements

For this area, OuiShare Fest Paris 2016 had 3 area leaders and 16 volunteers.
This is how work was split up according to the main tasks:
  • Clearing and tidy up of spaces
    • 2 people the day before the event starts to check out final details
