Generation Brexit

GENERATION BREXIT is a trailblazing project to crowd-source a millennial cohort vision for the future of UK / EU relations. The project invites those aged under 35 from across the UK and Europe to debate, decide and draft a policy proposal that will be sent to both the United Kingdom and the European Union Parliaments.

We are offering LSE students a chance to join the project team. This is an exciting opportunity to learn about crowd source technology and research design, while also contributing to an important public policy debate. Two roles are available: (1) Storify Facilitators; and (2) Blog Facilitators.

All facilitators will be at the LSE campus on weekdays from 12 – 23 June. During this time, you will attend 20 hours of specialised training. You will also prepare materials for publication on the crowdsource platform.

  • Storify Facilitators (limited to 20 places) will curate online English language resources and assemble these into Generation Brexit Storify presentations. You should plan to devote 20 hours to Storify preparation between 12 – 23 June.

    For the next 14-week period (until 29 September 2017), you will spend a minimum of 30 minutes each day on the platform. Your platform role will be to facilitate conversation, and to guide community members to relevant Generation Brexit Storifies and other online resources.

    In recognition of this contribution, you will be identified as a  'Facilitator' on the platform, and so listed as a member of the Generation Brexit Project Team.

  • Blog Facilitators (limited to 14 places) will co-author one Generation Brexit mini-blog (400-600 words) between 12-23 June and two Generation Brexit blogs (800-1200 words) between 26 June - 29 September. Mini-blogs will be published on Generation Brexit social media feeds. Blogs will be published in the LSE Brexit Blog or in a similar blog series.

    You should plan to devote 12 hours to the mini-blog and 24 hours to each blog. Throughout this time you will receive supervision from a senior member of the project team as well as editorial support from the LSE Brexit Blog editors.

    From 23 June – 29 September, you will spend a minimum of 30 minutes a day on the crowdsource platform engaging with other users. The blogs that you produce will respond to crowdsource ideas and interests. In recognition of this contribution, you will be identified as a 'Facilitator' on the platform, and so listed as a member of the Generation Brexit Project Team.

Please fill in the below form by Wednesday 31 May 2017
