UK Organising Team

The central Organising Team will be looking to support Organising across the UK – setting strategy, developing resources and building, connecting and supporting local level organising everywhere.

Click here to see the roles and functions of this team. We’re looking for committed volunteers to take on this crucial work and build this movement. Specifically people who are:

  • -Committed to the principles of a Green New Deal and excited about making it a reality in the UK 
  • -Committed to climate justice and building an equitable movement; have a passion to help create hubs that are reflective of the communities they are in; willingness to have real talk about race, class and other layers of oppression in a climate justice movement 
  • -Experience in any of the below functions, or willingness to learn! 
  • -While we fully appreciate situations change constantly, we’re looking for people who can make a fairly consistent commitment (at least 5 hours a week) for an initial period of time (6 months)
  • -We’ll have some face to face organising meetings (likely London), but welcome people from across the UK happy to work remotely 

In return we provide a dynamic and supportive team culture, and the chance to learn and make a difference. Expenses covered.

We acknowledge that people from certain backgrounds are under-represented in progressive movements and we’re committed to doing what we can to correct this. We are particularly keen to receive applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic people; people with disabilities; people who identify as being LGTBQIA; people who have a mental health condition; and people who identify as working-class or have done so in the past.

If this sounds like you, please send a short expression of interest to danielle@greennewdealuk.org by 6th January outlining which area you’d be interested in contributing to, a bit about yourself, your availability and whether you’d be able to attend an organising meeting on Sat 11th Jan in London.
