Great! Thanks for that 🤗

Should we take it that there is no honorarium/payment for the work of designing and delivering the training sessions?

October 29, 2019

Hi Sion! Indeed, there is no specific payment for that, but we are providing flights, local transport, accommodation, breakfast, and lunch! Let’s add what you get on a personal level from helping young motivated entrepreneurs while promoting the coop model, and we hope this is enough to attract passionate future trainers/leaders 🙂

Of course! Lesson in intergenerational transmission of the principle of unpaid labour 😂

October 30, 2019

We would rather name it intergenerational transmission of the principles of education, training and information, but also of solidarity! We still believe on those 🙂

Incredible points. Outstanding arguments. Keep up the great effort.

Do we have to apply individually? Or can we be a group (2 or 3) of trainers on one same application?
