DESCRIPTION

SOCIAL MEDIA REPS

The EcoFair is 100% volunteer driven. It is a fun, community-based, family-oriented event that informs and inspires people to make greener choices in their homes and communities. It is organized by Green Neighbours Network and Transition Toronto. Whereas the 2020 EcoFair Toronto was entirely virtual, this year’s EcoFair will include online events Nov 5 and 6, and inlife exhibits and activities on Nov 7 at Artscape Wychwood Barns and outdoors in an adjacent Park.

The Social Media Reps spread the word about the EcoFair to the neighbourhood and Toronto at large. As the purpose of the EcoFair is to educate, inspire, and engage people in the environment, good marketing (and hence good turnout) is the key to achieving our goals.

Responsibilities:
Develop content (text and images) for exhibitors and post to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter
Share EcoFair event details with businesses, community organizations, event websites, and community calendars to spread the word about the EcoFair
Take pictures of the event and post items to social media platforms on the day of the EcoFair

Outcomes:
The EcoFair is promoted actively on social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter)
People engage with the EcoFair content through the planning stages and leading up to the event
Drive attendance to EcoFair

Volunteer Requirements:
Experience developing content for social media
Familiar with Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter
Very organized, diligent, and a team player
Comfortable using Gmail, Google Docs, and Google Sheets to collaborate remotely
Passion for the environment and community-building

Time Commitment:
Able to attend one 2 hr organizing meeting per month (Aug– Nov)
Approx. 2 hours a week on a flexible schedule (Aug)
Approx. 30 min - 1 hour a day as event day approaches (Sep - Nov)
In-person attendance on the day of the event for 10 hrs (Nov 7)
