MitOst Camp, 20.–21.05.2016 in Berlin

Dear members,

We cordially invite you to this year’s MitOst Camp. The Camp will take place on 20th and 21st of May in Berlin. Register until 13th of May.

Topics In spring 2015 we started to think about the future of MitOst and initiated together with the strategic process MitOst 2018 together. We are exchanging ideas about new challenges as well as about how to shape the profile of MitOst. In five working groups we continuously work on the joint strategy paper MitOst 2018, which we first introduced to a broader audience last year in Ivano-Frankivsk (mailing strategy 2018, mailing members assembly 2015). The following working groups are active:

  • MitOst as an international members' association and as an international network
  • Governance at MitOst
  • Sustainable financing of MitOst
  • Mission statement and positioning of MitOst 2018
  • PR and communication strategy

At the MitOst Camp 2016 we want to bring together the current results, open questions and suggestions of the working groups. Which point of the strategic process did we reach by now? Which current developments do we observe? Which aspects are especially important for you to include in the working groups?

Until September 2016 we will collect more results and work further on the strategy paper. At the MitOst Festival in Tbilisi we will discuss the strategy paper and present it afterwards at the members’ assembly 2016.

Moreover this year's MitOst Camp will offer many opportunities for discussion, since there is a lot going on at MitOst: The Berlin office counts more than 30 employees now and is going to move to a new location. In March we were happy to welcome Kathrin Oerters in our team as the new coordinator of the members’ department. And we are looking for a new managing director, who will succeed Darius Polok. We are looking forward to having an exchange with you about all these current changes.

Timetable
We will start on Friday evening 6 pm and continue our work on Saturday.

Costs
We will provide snacks for lunch and dinner. Unfortunately, we cannot provide you with accommodation, but we will be happy to help, within the scope of our possibilities, to find a private host through the MitOst network. In case you are not able to take part in the MitOst Camp without the help of travel cost reimbursement, we will try to support you within a limited budget.
