No. Parking at and near the venues is very restricted. All volunteers – as well as spectators – are advised to use public transport. With your volunteer accreditation, you can use the public transport between Innsbruck and the event venues for free.
Unfortunately this is not possible as in most cases the volunteer and competition times will overlap.
Volunteers must speak very good German or English. Depending on the area you wish to work in, good German (written and spoken) may be necessary. You will find out more during the assignment process.
No. International Volunteers and all other Volunteers who do not live close enough to commute must find their own accommodation. We will provide a list of affordable accommodation partners when we tell you which job you have been allocated.
The individual steps in the volunteer process for the Winter World Masters Games 2020 are shown on the diagram on the volunteer team tirol website. We will do our very best to give you a job which matches your interests and qualifications. That is why you have the option to include your qualifications and up to three preferred areas of work during your application. . We will also provide a general training session where we tell you about your tasks shortly before the start of the event which is directly followed by a specific training session in which we will prepare you for what you will have to do during the Games.
A volunteer shift usually lasts between 6 and 10 hours and includes at least one break, though in most cases there will be more than one break.
First think about what your strengths are and what you like to do. Are you primarily interested in the sports implementation of this mega-event or would you rather help people who have questions about it? Are you familiar with the use of a digital camera? Do you like writing? Or are you more likely to be out and about in the field and help out with construction and conversion work? HERE you get all information about the different fields of application. You can list up to three desired working areas when registering as a volunteer. We will let you know in which working area we would need your help in a timely manner and will always be ready for your questions about your assignment.
Yes. Volunteers working at the WWMG 2020 must be 16 years old. Volunteers under the age of 18 have to present a declaration of consent, the latest at the orientation training, signed by a parent or legal guardian.
Volunteers who want to work at the WWMG 2020 must be available for at least 5 days. The start and end of your working period will depend on your job. Most Volunteers will be needed during the Games themselves between January 11th and 19th 2020 – in this period all working areas will be active. Some areas will be active before and after the event (Accreditation, Venue Management, Marketing, etc.). For organisational reasons we will give preference to applicants who are available to work for a longer period of time.
Shortly after your registration we will let you know which area you will be working in. You will receive your detailed shift plan around 3-4 weeks before the start of the event.
Depending on which area you work in, you will spend most of the day either indoors or outdoors. For your breaks you will be able to access the indoor volunteer area.
