Short-term Volunteering @ O2I

O2I  Short-term Volunteers are those who volunteer for O2I on a short-term (~1-3 weeks to 6 months) basis that are mostly remote volunteering activities.

  1. The main responsibility of the Short-term Volunteer is to spread awareness about food waste reduction, O2I and its events through social media or through phone/mail/in-person.
  2. Share their experience of attending the event in social media or through email.
  3. Bring awareness through blog/social media posts, webinars, newsletters and articles in O2I Magazine.
  • Share your experience of attending O2I event and food waste reduction in general.
  • Practice what you learnt from O2I event in real-life situation and share it with us.
  • You could write a blog/social media post about what you learnt from the event and we can post that on our website.
  • If you are an artist, you can create food waste awareness through various forms of arts like painting, graphical images etc. and we can use that in our newsletters and O2I Magazine.
