The project office

From now on we cycle together, as Tandem, because our project office is officially called TandemProject Office. Tandem suits us because we like environmentally friendly movement and we are, after all, two organizations. We are Schwarzkopf-Stiftung Junges Europa and betterplace lab. We want to change something in our society. Sustainably. By joining forces and having the courage to go new ways. While the Schwarzkopf-Stiftung Junges Europa contributes its vision of a Europe of openness,
solidarity and democracy shaped by young people, betterplace lab focuses on the social potential of the digital transformation.
The project office is the contact point for the implementation and coordination of the EuropeanVolunteering Capital 2021. All threads come together in the project office. Berlin Partner accompanies the implementation of the campaign year communicatively, with the support of the Berlin Partner Network.

Our mission:

To honor the diverse, ever-changing landscape of volunteering in 21st century Berlin, to promote it with innovative measures, and to bring sustainable impulses to the engagement landscape. We take the magnifying glass in our hands and study the complexity of volunteering today with its challenges and opportunities. And then, very modestly, we want to set the course for the future.

We desire to reach out to the many volunteers in the city, as well as the organizations that work with volunteers and get them excited about the European Volunteering Capital Berlin 2021 so that they can get involved and help shape this year. We will not succeed alone: a steering committee with actors from civil society, politics, administration, economy and science will support us in this. Because the following also applies to us and to this year: #EntdeckeDasWirInDir.
