ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY
Greenpeace believes that climate change is the most urgent problem facing our planet right now, and the window for meaningful action is closing fast. Corporations and governments lack ambition, and in many cases are actively obstructing climate solutions.
Greenpeace is hiring a Climate Campaigner to work with supporters across the country and with allies to pressure our political institutions and some of our leading companies to take action on climate before it’s too late. The Climate Campaigner will work with our experts in communications, research, and digital to craft campaigns and interventions that change the conversation on climate and spur action at the highest levels of government and corporations to secure a just, green and peaceful future for all.
The Climate Campaigner will use their creative communications, campaigning and digital organizing skills to inform and engage Greenpeace supporters on issues of climate, and working in coalition with allies in the environmental, labor, civil rights and other movement sectors to advance our shared campaign goals. This is a full time, exempt, benefits eligible position reporting to the Climate Director based in Washington, DC.
