Position: Volunteer Journalist and Writer
Organization: Reimagine Agriculture
Location: anywhere in Canada
Reimagine Agriculture is looking for a volunteer writer and journalist. The commitment involves responding to news articles on twitter, writing op-eds and letters to the editor and contributing to our blog from Reimagine Agriculture’s perspective.
About Reimagine Agriculture:
We founded Reimagine Agriculture because we saw the opportunity to address pressing agricultural issues that are not currently being given enough attention in Canada. The farming sector is often overlooked in the critical and ongoing conversations surrounding waste and climate change. As agricultural waste and demand for meat, dairy, eggs and other products of animal agriculture continue to grow worldwide, their contributions to the already dire effects of climate change will worsen. Applying our expertise to these critically overlooked issues, Reimagine Agriculture is committed to reducing the negative impacts of these systems, building the changes in Canada that are needed throughout the world.
We accomplish these goals through the primary use of education, resources and support, and policy change. This can be in the form of presentations to various age groups and organizations, national campaigns with democratic engagement, and working with related stakeholders. Our focus is on being effective, using evidence-based reasoning and meeting people where they are. Learn more about us at reimagineagriculture.org
What we are looking for in you:
We are hoping to further expand our impact through sharing our perspective on news issues. This will help provide important educational awareness of our perspective, find donors and volunteers who are interested in connecting with the organization and allow us a seat at the table in important discussions.
It is important to us to have a volunteer who has a strong understanding of these agricultural issues and a passion to address them. Applicants should be open-minded and thoughtful. It is absolutely not necessary to be vegetarian or vegan for the position (and may even be an asset as that is the primary population we work with).
Interested individuals can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a few paragraphs explaining why they’re passionate about these agricultural issues, what they think they can bring to the position and an attached resume. The deadline is April 20.
