We are looking for a Senior Advocacy Lead with a track-record of successful engagement and influencing with governments and multilateral processes at the highest level.
We need a future where our economies deliver greater wellbeing for all within planetary boundaries. Earth4All is creating a unifying agenda for our collective future on Earth. Can all of humanity prosper and thrive on a stable, resilient Earth? Yes, it can.
Earth4All is a new ambitious international initiative initiated by the Club of Rome, Norwegian Business School, Stockholm Resilience Centre and Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. It is built around a call to action to re-program our economies, and five viable economic turnarounds that must be scaled immediately (eliminate poverty, address inequality, deliver women’s empowerment, transform the food and energy systems) to stabilise Earth and support thriving societies. The conclusion is unequivocal: only systems-level change driven by all of today’s movements working together will succeed. That’s where you come in – we need an experienced Senior Advocacy Lead who can join the Earth4All Campaign Team, and lead on our advocacy strategy and program.
In 1972, the Club of Rome commissioned a report – The Limits to Growth – to look at the interconnected issues and complex problems faced by humanity. The report warned of unlimited material growth on a finite planet and was able to foster understanding of the varied but interdependent components – economic, political, natural and social – that make up the global system in which we all live; to bring that new understanding to the attention of policymakers and the public worldwide; and in this way to promote new policy initiatives and action.
Earth4All builds on the legacies of The Limits to Growth, as well as the ground-breaking Planetary Boundaries frameworks. Science is at the heart of our work. We rethink the current linear, growth-at-all-costs economic approach and promote policies to move beyond GDP for a safe, secure and prosperous future in the Anthropocene.
Earth4All is based on a newly developed system dynamic model looking at the interactions of environmental and socioeconomic factors, as well as a 21st Century Transformational Economics Commission with more than 30 esteemed economic thinkers from across the world. In September 2022, Earth4All will publish its findings, and launch an open campaign to promote the adoption by governments of long-term policies.
The Senior Advocacy Lead for Earth4All is responsible for co-designing and delivering an advocacy strategy that influences decision-makers in selected countries and multi-lateral fora.
This advocacy strategy is an integral part of the Earth4All Campaign, complemented by public-facing, media, research and participation strategies. The Senior Advocacy Lead will be matrix managed by the Earth4All Campaign Lead, and line-managed by the Co-President of the Club of Rome.
Key to this role is the ability to work collaboratively with a large variety of stakeholders to carry the messages and recommendations of Earth4All at key political and campaign moments.
The person will be joining a lean campaign team with global ambitions. Responsibilities will range from strategy to hands-on policy work, from convening dialogues to contribute to media and public campaign strategies from a policy perspective, from writing policy briefs to directly influencing key and senior decision-makers in government, civil society, or the financial sector. The Senior Advocacy Lead will support the participation of Earth4All participants in key events, including the members of the Transformational Economics Commission, and create concrete opportunities to influence.
The person will have access to a broad network of thinkers and decision makers via Earth4All team members but is expected to bring their own contacts and network via previous advocacy roles.
The strategic outcomes of the Earth4All advocacy strategy have been agreed, but room remains for the Senior Advocacy Lead to adjust the outcomes based on their own experience and analysis of the potential of the Earth4All initiative.
The position is for the initiative Earth4All, but the person will be contracted with the Club of Rome.
