About the Associate Director for Europe Campaigns and Organising

We are embarking on a new organisational strategy that is shifting 350’s stance to not just campaign against fossil fuels, but also for the solutions to the climate crisis, with a focus on an alternative energy system that is not only powered entirely by renewable energy, but that provides affordability and access as well, and that is controlled and owned by and for people, not corporate profit. The energy crisis in Europe gives us a chance to rapidly shift public support towards this vision, and to consider what European governments can do at home, but also in recognition of the role Europe needs to plays in supporting the energy transition in countries who’ve done the least to contribute to the climate crisis.

As we re-hire for this role in our team, we want to maintain its strong focus to bring the different strands of our national and regional campaigning and organising work together for greater impact under this new direction and emphasise even further how our work needs to be rooted in a larger vision of a broad, equitable and powerful European climate justice movement.
