I served as Communications Director for the Global Ecovillage Network, coordinating a small team of international staff and volunteers direct all social media, website, print and event communications in collaboration with GEN’s five regional networks worldwide. We produced a 50 page annual report, redesigned UX on the network’s signature interactive map, and coordinated an online summit for over 8000 participants. Examples of site content I produced and tracked can be viewed here.
I began my work with GEN as Marketing and Outreach as Communications Officer for the European Ecovillage Conference 2017. The role involved facilitating a team of contractors, staff and volunteers working across Europe with different organizations to promote the conference. We successfully met our goal of hosting the largest conference in the organization’s 21 year history. I created content, coordinated translation into 12 languages, and built outreach tracking protocols for tens of thousands of contacts across Europe and beyond.
The following video I produced over videoconferencing for social media outreach with our keynote speaker, Right Livelihood Award winner Helena Norberg-Hodge, supported event publicity along with a contemporary article our team solicited with The Guardian newspaper.
