Your financial contribution enables Students Organizing for Sustainability (SOS) to support and connect the members of the GO movement in a way that’s fair and inclusive. The money is used to pay for the working hours of the Green Office Movement Coordinator (as SOS staff) to organise the above-mentioned channels and promote the expansion of the movement. As more GOs join, this may be used to increase GO Movement coordination capacity or offer support funds to GO initiatives or projects.
Considering the varying financial capacities of GOs and GO initiatives, we opted for a solidarity-based model: this means you can choose which amount seems appropriate to you, given your annual budget and willingness to contribute to the movement.
The following movement channels are only available to registered members, paying at least the minimum annual contribution of 180€: the GO Movement platform, online summits, coordinator calls, catch-up calls, the Resource Hub.
No-cost membership can be granted in special cases, like GOs where students are supported in non-monetary ways and the GO has no or a very limited budget (especially in countries where universities are not well resourced). Please explain your situation in the registration form, if you think this applies to you.
Remember to include this contribution in your annual budget.
