|350.org is looking for an experienced campaigner with an understanding and knowledge of fossil fuel struggles across Europe. This is a short-term role beginning at the start of November, until the end of January 2017.
350.org is building a global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis. Our online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions are led from the bottom up by thousands of volunteer organizers in over 188 countries. 350.org works hard to organize in a new way—everywhere at once, using online tools to facilitate strategic offline action. We want to be a laboratory for the best ways to strengthen the climate movement and catalyze transformation around the world.
About the Europe Campaigner
The Keep It In The Ground work of 350.org in Europe is focused on helping build grassroots power of groups of people who directly challenge the fossil fuel industry through resistance against a small number of strategic projects, whose cancellation would accelerate the phase out of fossil fuels.
This is a temporary role to cover some key responsibilities while the Europe Keep It In The Ground Coordinator is on leave.
This role will encompass the following responsibilities:
· Support 3 identified grassroots struggles in Europe (gas extraction in the Netherlands, shale gas imports in France, anti-coal efforts in Germany and Europe more broadly);
· Provide strategic guidance and advice to fellow staff members involved in engaging more directly with those struggles and with related partners, local groups, events and processes;
· Make connections (in terms of narrative and strategy) between those struggles and the regional-level fossil fuel resistance, as well as with our Europe divestment campaign.
· Develop a map of Keep It In The Ground struggles across Europe, as basis for future strategy development, and explore tools to connect them together;
· Coordinate research and analysis around climate science and fossil fuel extraction in the region;
· Consult partners and allies, as well as our network of local groups.
Location: This role can be based remotely from anywhere within European time-zones, though there is a preference for the role to be based in a location where there are other staff members, in order to have team support (including Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam, Stockholm, London). Some travel will be necessary.
