Help us to communicate better in different languages. Register and/or publicise Volunteer Translators for Housing Rights Without Frontiers!
The International Alliance of Inhabitants is seeking volunteer translators to expand our group of ‘Volunteer Translators for Housing Rights’, to provide translations for our website and also interpretation during our organised events. We are looking for expertise in all combinations of the languages found on our website (Spanish, English, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian).
All translations are made into the traslator’s native language.
Volunteer Translators can make use of a dedicated website where you can both contribute to the work and find online tools and resources to help you in your tasks. At the end of each year you will receive a certificate recording your contribution.
And invite others to do so too!
We want to develop and improve communication among the thousands of organisations that defend the right to housing, which see www.habitants.org as an increasingly useful tool, and one that is needed more and more for promoting knowledge-sharing and solidarity.
The World Assembly of Inhabitants took place with great success in Tunisia in March 2015, during the World Social Forum. It enjoyed the support of major international housing rights networks and the participation of organisations from more than 45 countries from all the world’s continents. It is based on a participatory process developed little by little during the meetings that we have held in many countries in different continents. That process means we need to systematize the different experiences and to build a collective memory and shared know-how.
The Assembly was just the beginning of a new phase of our activities. We will also be building the World Urban Social Forum as an alternative to the UN summit -Habitat III (Quito, Ecuador, October 2016). One more step on the path to building a new Urban Social Pact for an Urban and Community Way!
Get involved and get colleagues and friends to get involved too!
Multilingualism is the key to the future!
