Volunteering for LSuC 2017
Learning Societies unConference is entirely organized in the spirit of gift culture and run by multiple volunteers. We feel everyone is a volunteer, a teacher, a co-creator. We believe in creating a space of love and sharing where everyone takes part in co creating. But to manage a huge crowd we need some special people to work along us to create a fulfilling experience for everyone. They form the backbone of our entire gathering.
We have multiple opportunities to choose from depending upon your skills or what you would want to learn and experience during the event.

A stream, from its course in far-off mountains, passing through every kind and description of countryside, at last reached the sands of the desert. Just as it had crossed every other barrier, the stream tried to cross this one, but found that as fast as it ran into the sand, its waters disappeared.
