Volunteer Areas

You support us in looking after the re:publica media partners and journalists OR partners and speakers OR participants and welcome them in a friendly manner. You validate tickets at the accreditation, issue name tags and admission wristbands. You make sure that everyone finds their way around and gets off to a good start at re:publica. You should have good communication skills and a good command of English.

If you don't want to miss out on any of the three-day programme and also like to be physically active, then become a build-up volunteer. Take the opportunity and be there when the atmosphere for this year's motto "CASH" is created in the empty halls. Please only sign up here if you are physically fit! You will need sturdy, closed shoes and clothes that can get dirty. (Please no trainers/sneakers or cloth shoes if possible - preferably work shoes).

Are you patient and stress-resistant? Then this is the right place for you. The cloakroom / suitcase cloakroom is located directly next to the accreditation. There are periods when there is less work to do, but at busy times you should keep your cool and stay on top of things. You may be assigned to other areas during quiet times.

As a flex volunteer, spontaneity and flexibility are the most important prerequisites. You help out wherever support is needed. This can be at the accreditation or at the entrance - but physical commitment is also required. It’s also possible that there are stretches of time when there’s nothing to do. Let yourself be surprised! You need sturdy, closed shoes. (No trainers/sneakers or cloth shoes if possible).

As a volunteer in this area, you will be assigned to the headphone stages, where you will hand out headphones for live translations or the stage sound before and during the talks It is important that you are friendly approachable (service oriented) but firm in your appearance to be able to communicate various cues during the handover. You should be quick and aware, especially at the beginning and end of talks, and keep calm even when things get hectic.

As a hospitality volunteer, you are the face of re:publica and will work in various areas with visitor contact.

Where can I find the toilet? When is the lecture? How do I log into the W-LAN? At the Infopoint you are the central point of contact at re:publica. If you are communicative and enjoy being helpful and answering questions patiently, this is a suitable position for you. To be able to answer questions from both German and international guests, you should have a good command of both languages.

We will have an area for kids and their parents with a programme for younger participants, as well as a simple lounge area with toys. It is important to us that parents won't get the impression that they can just drop off their kids and have fun at the re:publica - their supervisory duty is still on them, also for insurance reasons. Parents will be told that the kids space provides facilities, which are particularly kids-friendly. That means you are no kindergartener - you just have an eye on the whole area and make sure that everything runs smoothly: Call the supervisor in case of trouble, run some errands, or be the contact person for parents and/or kids.

Are you interested in games, do you have a general affinity for technology and are you enthusiastic about art at the same time? Then the colourful supporting programme of re:publica 23 with its VR and AR experiences, installations, small art, pop-ups and happenings is the right thing for you. You will be in charge of OFF STAGE programme items and explaining things to the re:publica participants, and simply being on site and available for questions about the supporting programme.

As a volunteer in the programme team, you will support us mainly with speaker support, but you will also help out in emergencies. Is there not enough water at the stage? A speaker is not yet at the right stage? Let's go! We also look after the interpreters and translators and inform them about changes or special presentation formats. As a volunteer in the programme area, you should have a good command of English & German, be able to keep calm in stressful situations, and have a friendly manner.

A watchful eye is needed at the stage. Does the stage need to be cleaned up? Is there water at the stage? Does a technician need something to eat or drink? Are all the doors closed? Do guests need help? Do we need fresh air? You will also assist the stage managers and contribute to the smooth running of the programme.

You don't want to miss any of the three-day programme and like to be physically active? Then take on a helper shift in our storage. Please only sign up here if you are physically fit! You will need sturdy closed shoes and clothes that can get dirty. (Please no trainers/sneakers or cloth shoes if possible - boots or work shoes are best).

You support the sustainability team at re:publica with their mission and tasks. This includes: informing and guiding the visitors, and collecting and separating trash.

As a volunteer in the technical department you will support all technical areas (audio/lighting/video/streaming) of the re:publica and general helpers. Cables, cable ties and gaffa: these are your main tools. You will support the network setup and should bring along a certain affinity for technology, as well as physical commitment, which is especially needed for laying cables. Please only specify this as a prio if you are physically fit and have some basic technical knowledge. You will mainly be involved in setting up and dismantling the technical equipment for re:publica. You will need sturdy, closed shoes. (If possible, please do not wear trainers/sneakers or cloth shoes - preferably work shoes).

TINCON Berlin, a youth conferenz for the digital society, will take place on June 7 & 8 as part of re:publica.. The programme at TINCON is all about topics of the young and digital raised society. The programme is divided into: Games, Network policy and Code, Media Competence, Science & Education, Music & Livestyle as well as Activism. You will help with a variety of tasks including accreditation, workshops, build-up and -down, stagehand, and hospitality.
