Volunteer Regional Organiser Recruitment now open

Get involved with Green New Deal UK – Regional Organisers RECRUITMENT OPEN! 

Friends, 

I hope you’re well. 

Organising Plans are ramping up here at Green New Deal UK, and we’ve just opened recruitment for a network of Volunteer Regional Organisers – could this be you? 

Check out the Regional Organiser Role Description and how to apply here! 

We know achieving a Green New Deal  will require sustained pressure on local and national government, from a broad-based, powerful, UK wide movement that wins hearts and minds. 

A key part of our strategy is setting up and/or supporting Local Organising Hubs across the UK to that build this mass public support for, participation in and power behind Green New Deal. 

As a Volunteer Regional Organiser, you will be responsible for working in a Regional Organising Team to support the development and flourishing of a network of Local Green New Deal Campaign Hubs across your region.

We’re looking for 5-6 people from each region and nation of the UK, who’ll attend a residential training weekend 27-29th of March. 

We need people from diverse organising backgrounds who are committed to the principles of the Green New Deal and the fight for climate justice, and are able to support others in developing and building campaigns locally.

More information about the role, person specification and how to apply can be found here. Deadline for applications 11.59pm, Sunday 1st March. 

Equally, if you know others who might be interested, please do share this with your networks (there’s a tweet, facebook and instagram post too). 

If you would like more information about Green New Deal UK, the Green New Deal strategy and organising plans, we’ll be hosting an open Introduction Webinar: 6pm, Tuesday 11th Feb, and 11am, Sat 22nd Feb – register to attend here. (this is entirely voluntary and will not affect your application to be a Regional Organiser) 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me on darran@greennewdealuk.org 

Darran McLaughlin, 

Regional Training Organiser, GND UK 

NB – this is not the only way to be part of the Green New Deal campaign – there are plenty of ways to get involved! Local Hubs will be the beating heart and driving force of this campaign – if you’d like to turn your attention to making change and building power in your area instead – either starting or being part of a Local Hub – please let us know here, or email danielle@greennewdealuk.org with questions.
