We are looking for a European forest campaigner to be part of an exciting new long-term strategy to increase the transparency and governance of forests at the Member State and EU level and to help ensure EU climate and environment policies stimulate alternative economic models to increase social justice and the resilience of forests. The chosen candidate will work in a tight knit team working on interconnected strategies to improve the governance of European forests and reduce the pressures on them and the people that depend on them.
This role will help challenge carbon offsetting but also propose new policies to protect and restore European Forests. It will mainly focus on campaigning and movement building, working closely with partners in several forested European countries as well as Indigenous territories, exposing the power imbalances and unequal access to forest policy making. The chosen candidate will need to build alliances between alternative foresters and forest workers, and the forest movement and other social movements.
