Once per semester, Tim will get in touch with you to hear about the status, goals and challenges of your team and offer his advice, connect you with other GOs facing similar challenges or plan a workshop with you.
This is also a good opportunity to evaluate your team, using the Team Health Check, and to update the Overview of Activities and Challenges of Green Offices.

Solidary contribution

Your solidarity-based financial contribution enables rootAbility to support and connect the members of the GO movement in a way that’s inclusive, considering that some GOs have no or very little resources. Therefore, the movement channels are freely available also to those who are unable to contribute financially.
You can choose which amount seems appropriate to you, considering your budget availabilities.
Suggested annual contributions: reduced = 180€ / standard = 360€ / movement superstar = 720€.
The money is used to pay for SOS international‘s working hours to organise the above-mentioned channels and promote the expansion of the movement.
If you are currently developing your GO or renewing your budget, include this contribution in your annual budget.
