How can I get involved?
If you already have skills in a particular area, you can introduce yourself to any of the Departments listed below.
TVP Activism: admin@tvpactivism.com
Do you have organizational experience?  Are you a good communicator?  Would you like to start a team in your area if one doesn’t yet exist?  Sue, Federico or Sašo will help you out.

TVP Magazine: http://www.tvpmagazine.com/#toContact
If you'd like to write articles that are relevant to the direction of The Venus Project, we would love to publish them in TVP Magazine. We will also help you with proofreading, so you don't have to worry about that aspect. If you need more details, please don't hesitate to contact us through the link on the main website.

Linguistic Team International: linguisticteam@gmail.com
Do you speak more than one language or are you exceptionally strong in English?  Transcribing, proofreading, translating and translation proofreading are all skills that are very much needed in creating and distributing all of the official translation work for TVP.  Write to LTI or introduce yourself in the LTI forum to learn how to join the fun.

TVP Social Media contact: social.media@thevenusproject.com
Is social media networking your area of expertise?  Or perhaps as a hobby you are passionate about?  Do you have experience with Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc.?  Social media always needs help.

Audio Department: audio.tvpmedia@thevenusproject.com
The Audio Department's focus is on the production and improvement of professional music, narrations and audio effects for use in TVP educational and promotional film & video media. If you are into music, audio engineering or dubbing, please feel free to contact us.

Editorial Department: editorial.tvpmedia@thevenusproject.com
This Department handles the editing & proofreading of most TVP Activism materials, including TVPMagazine, along with maintaining several activist text-based resources.  As you might imagine, there is a lot here to handle and experienced proofreading volunteers are very much needed to help cover all of it.

Graphics Department: graphics.tvpmedia@thevenusproject.com
Graphics Dep’t members work alongside other project teams to create compelling and informative images for their projects.  A variety of image-making needs exists here, if you’re so inclined.

Video Department: video.tvpmedia@thevenusproject.com
The Video department is interested in creating high level education videos, tutorials and other promotional material for The Venus Project.  If you are experienced in any aspect of video production, please contact us!

Human Resources: hr@thevenusproject.com
Do you have an impressive CV in a scientific, engineering or architectural field and would like to get updates on new projects to help in the future?  Then email HR!

Web Design: webmaster@thevenusproject.com
Would you like to help in designing new web pages and tools to improve our efficiency.

3D Production Team: andrew.buxton@thevenusproject.com
The teams goal is to produce visual effects aimed at visualizing a Resource-based economy and the many designs of The Venus Project.  We are currently seeking professionals in the games and film industry such as: Modellers, 2D Artists (Texturing), Animators, Riggers, DMP Artists, Compositors, VFX Supervisors, VFX TD’s etc.

Construction Design Team: andrew.buxton@thevenusproject.com
Currently seeking construction design professionals in senior positions to manage pre-construction architectural and engineering design of future cities and total enclosure systems.

CORCEN Simulation team: joab.russo@tvpdesign.com
Designing an interactive simulation monitoring existing data about the world's resources and projecting this world data into future analytical data sets.

Official Project Proposals: admin@thevenusproject.com
Do you have a serious project proposal and are you qualified to work on it through completion?  Send an email with a well-researched presentation, video or proposal for review.

Hopefully, all of this information will help you find the best open door for you to join us and help “pull the cart”, together with the rest of the TVP teams.  Whatever you decide to do, whether you join an activism team or one or more of the other teams, remember that this is a globally collaborative project in which we are very likely looking at a long road ahead of us.  This is not something that can be started today and have it finished tomorrow.  Be aware of this and bring patience and a strong passion to learn.  Together, we will reach our goal sooner than each one of us ever could out on his/her own island.

How can I join TVP Activism?
The first thing anyone interested in becoming active will probably want to do is to find out if there are others in their country or state who are already involved in TVP Activism.
On the TVP website, there is a list of the current POCs who can welcome you on board and help you get to know the others in the team. The activist teams who are still quite small will give you the chance to help them grow from the beginning; the more established activist teams can help you benefit from the experience they have already gained.

We also have a list of TVP's recognized facebook groups and pages that you can check out to see if there is one for your country.
There are many unrecognized groups and pages out there that are not always sharing relevant information about TVP. If they are not on this list, they are not official. For this reason, we ask everyone to please not create any new TVP-focused Facebook groups or pages without consulting with TVP Activism first.

Once you find a team, it's important to take the time to find out all that is going on there, the tools that the team uses, who is who and who does what. In other words, how the team works and organizes itself.  Be patient with this process and remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day! Some teams have been around a while and already have projects underway and are very organized. Some teams are quite new and still finding their footing.

What kinds of activities are the activism teams organizing?
Depending on the size of the team and the abilities of the different members, various kinds of projects can be organized. The most important one we are preparing for now is mass screenings of the new documentary series, “The Choice is Ours”, which will soon be ready for public release.
A documentary screening is perhaps one of the most typical events that teams create, but Teams are also involved in other important areas like Study Groups, Social Networks managment and translations (for those who doesen't speak english).

Armenia held a screening of Paradise or Oblivion in a high school.

This display of Jacques designs on large boards in the street in Bulgaria is another way of introducing TVP to the general public.

TVP Chile has physical (in-person) meetups, and also participates in events with other organizations such as EcoFondas Estaciones

The team in Israel had wonderful success with a real theater screening of Paradise or Oblivion, followed by a Question and Answer session.

Sue Everatt (POC Spain) was invited to give a talk in an event created by an Italian organization at the start of the year. She met up with the members of the Italian team and their POC Federico as well as Saso (POC Slovenia), and spent a couple of wonderful days introducing people in Grosetto to TVP.

Sometimes teams are not able to find such elegant places for their screenings, but this doesn’t lessen the effect a screening can have!
