These communication channels and information resources allow you to connect with other movement members and to receive support, tips and updates

For virtual exchanges independent of physical travel, as the movement expands globally. These take place once per semester.
Use selected templates, good-practices and guides to save time, boost your efforts and build on the experience of other GOs. You’ll receive access after registering.
Coordinators or managers of Green Office teams are invited once per semester for 2 hour exchange about topics of mutual interest (high impact projects, good practices, etc). There is also a group on our platform specifically for coordinators.
Meet the GO movement community in person* to exchange ideas & experiences, and develop change-maker skills.
(*These can only take place if a Green Office volunteers to organize it with support of SOS, and if COVID measures allow).
Show your community and stakeholders that you are part of the Green Office Movement by using the movement logo on your website, PR materials and social media.
You will receive the high-resolution logo after sending the membership registration form.

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.
Suggested contribution levels, based on what existing members contribute (the contributions are paid in advance and per year):
