GAP Academy Project
Start date: 01 Jul 2016, End date: 31 May 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The aim of this project is to set up a partnership between GAP and VIA in order to able to select, prepare and send a volunteer to participate in the GAP Academy project.GAP International, together with our member organizations, has carried out many different projects locally, to empower, coach and train citizens to live sustainably, subsequently leading to a more sustainable society. Every project has an action research component – an on-going process to extract learning and experience, communicate it back to the secretariat, where it gets integrated into the common body of knowledge and made available to the network members. In this way, the GAP methodology and tools for effective, sustainable behaviour change is constantly evolving. In order to further strengthen this work we recently initiated a development process for the membership network, aiming at deepening the collaboration between members (who are independent organizations), strengthening the network’s identity as a Global Leader in Sustainable Behaviour Change both internally and externally, and scaling up operations globally by increasing members’ involvement in the international operations. We call this the GAP Academy project, and it will be the main project the volunteer will be working on.The project entails mapping the needs and ambitions of the members, identifying the products and services that are required to support and develop the members own operations as well as strengthening the network cohesion, and supplying common products and services that the members can market and deliver outside the network. The volunteer will participate in this work as an assistant to the project manager, in ways corresponding to her/his interest and ability. Within this the volunteer will be highly stimulated to reflect on the personal learning experiences and be an active part of theorganization. The project involves a good balance between personal input, and room for individual projects, and guidance from a highly experienced team and a personal mentor. The activities will last the whole volunteering period and will be carried out mainly in the GAP secretariat office in Stockholm.
