Join our volunteers / General info
To truly experience the magic of GZG you have to help make it happen! Here you will find all the info on how to join us.

🗓️ How to Sign-Up as a volunteer

  1. Every Sunday we will add a Sign-Up message in our GZG Sign-Up Group 
  2. Copy this sign-up message (press and hold it and then use the button in the top right corner) 
  3. Paste the message into your Type a message field and add your name in one of the available spaces before pressing the Send button.
  4. If for some reason you can’t make it anymore, please copy the last sign-up message, delete your name, and then paste it back into the group.
    This way everyone can quickly see which positions are currently filled and which are still available.

All our volunteer activities begin at this location:

When you have arrived:

  1. Walk through the tall white columns towards the inner courtyard and look for the glass doors in the corner under the sign WMO RADAR.
