Hi there, dear Sandboxer, and welcome! 🤗
We are very excited to have you as part of our community and to co-create this experience with you. We want you to have a smooth ride, and that starts with knowing how to navigate your way around. Make sure to read all and reach out to your ambassador with any questions!
What is Sandbox?
Sandbox is a volunteer-based organization that is mostly decentralized and run by hubs. We have a global structure that consists of the board, governance council, hub ambassadors and the initiative leads. 🔍 Visit this page to get the full picture of Sandbox values, cultural pillars, leadership, bylaws and more:
While every member gets to explore Sandbox and learn what it means for them, there are some fundamental and overarching truths about what this community stands for.
How to get involved?
The most important question you can ask when joining Sandbox is how to get involved and become an active member.
Here are some ideas of how to get involved 👇
Low hanging fruit
Respond to requests in the group - say hi to people, make recommendations, suggest others who they should speak to, celebrate acts or milestones of others
- Host a travelling Sandboxer - Attend an event every 1-2 months - Become a buddy to a new Sandboxer - Assess recruitment applications - written, interviews or WOWs
- Co-host an event (at your home or another’s) - Facilitate an event - Curate an event series (e.g. book club) - Update the live newsletter with Sandboxer news and share it every 2 weeks - Create a spreadsheet/shared doc to capture our recommendations - Interview hub members and capture their profiles in a shared deck - Help organise/clean the WhatsApp group (contacting old members) - Co-lead a hub retreat
- Design a Sandbox global initiative (e.g. Superhive, Fall in Love, Skillshare) - Host a retreat - Join the Summit team - Be on the board/governance council - Join a working group
Here are some initiatives others are running 👇 Feel free to join these or start your own!
How to meet fellow Sandboxers?
Sandbox’s beauty lies in the serendipity that happens when you meet a new friend, lover, partner, co-founder, mentor, or someone who challenges your views within the community.
How to stay up to date?
Staying in touch with the global community is fundamental for your sense of belongingness.
For that, we have channels you 100% should be a part of: (to read more, press on the triangle and more info will unfold)
The Sandbox Global Newsletter is a monthly community update sent by the Communications Working Group, where you can read Hub news, the most up-to-date list of retreats, global news, governance news, and all about initiatives happening in the community. To subscribe, reach out to your ambassador.
SuperHive is Sandbox's one and only interactive newsletter for sharing, offering and looking for support. Each week 1,200 members receive this email. Subscribe here.
We have a WhatsApp community with more than 60 chats – from local hubs to the global Sandbox Today chat to AI discussions, founder chat, a book club, and everything in between. You should be able to access all these chats via the community section, once you’re added to your local Hub chat.
We have established a member database where every single Sandbox member is registered. You can see all other members there, their contact details, and hubs. Unaty is also our main source for governmental actions like the yearly opt-in, which allows you to vote on initiatives and bylaws changes. To do that, you'll have to officially opt-in into our Swiss Association
We've implemented a tool called AddEvent to share community calendars and events. Take a look at the upcoming events and add to your existing calendar here.
We have a private Facebook group, where you can ask questions and engage with others. To join, follow this link
