INTERNSHIP: EcoAgriculture Communications/Journalism Intern
EcoAgriculture Partners (EcoAgriculture) is an international non-profit organization that strives to bring about a world where rural landscapes are managed to improve rural livelihoods, conserve native ecosystems, and sustainably produce food and fiber. The organization does so by providing training, research, policy solutions, and support to farmers, communities, and organizations at the local, national and international levels. We see ecoagriculture not as an abstract concept, but as a widely-applicable blueprint for sustainable development and a solution to global challenges such as food security, persistent poverty, climate change, ecosystem degradation and biodiversity loss.
EcoAgriculture seeks to hire a Communications/Journalism Intern to join our committed team in our Washington, D.C., headquarters from early September to late December 2011. The intern will have a demonstrated foundation in journalism and communications and a strong interest in agriculture. The intern will work directly with the Director of Knowledge Sharing and Policy Advocacy to manage a new blog for the Landscapes for People, Food, and Nature Initiative. This position is offered as 20 – 40 hours per week as mutually agreeable by EcoAgriculture and the applicant.
Deadline: August 31, 2011
