World Space Week is the organization responsible for facilitating the UN declaration of 1999, in which the week of 4 to 10 October was declared World Space Week. As such we do not organize any events ourselves, but instead we manage a large network of volunteers who promote, advertise, encourage, report and ultimately advise many individual event organizers in all countries of the world. These hundreds or even thousands of event organizers make World Space Week happen.
With close to 1900 events celebrated in 73 countries in 2015, WSWA works with its national coordinators in 80 countries as well as with a core group of volunteers to promote WSW. As WSW activities continue to increase, we need more volunteers with creative, open mind-can do attitude to take us to the next level.
There are many benefits to volunteering with WSWA including building up a network in the space community, giving back to the community and being involved in something truly global and special.
1) National Coordinators
Although we are represented in over 80 countries, there are still many countries where we have no National Coordinator. The National Coordinator is the linking pin between the global team and the event organizers, national and local media and key contacts in a country (min. 2 hours per week).
If you are interested, please contact our National Coordinator Manager Mr. Armengol Torres (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get an application form and volunteer job description.
2) Global WSWA volunteer positions
To strengthen the organization at global level, we are always looking for people with relevant skills, a passion for space education and outreach and some time available to help us out. The exact role you may be able to fill depends on our requirements, your skills and the time you can invest.
If you can help us in a role not listed here, please contact us to see if we can develop a special role suited to your skills.
If you are interested in any of global volunteer positions, please contact our Executive Director Mr. Goran Nikolasevic (email@example.com) to learn more about possible roles and information on how to apply.
