An All-Volunteer Team

7in7 is 100% volunteer-run! From the co-founders who spend thousands of hours planning, to the event heroes who make sure everything runs smoothly, to our apprentices who kick ass behind-the-scenes, the incredible nomads on this page give their time to make 7in7 the best event across all seven continents. Learn more about why on the 7in7 blog.
