WWF-NL is looking for an intern for the program Voices for Just Climate Action, starting in September for a period of 6 months.

Intern - Communicator for Voices for just Climate Action Program

Zeist € 550

Voices for Just Climate Action (VCA):

The Voices for Just Climate Action (VCA) Program is one of WWF programs aimed to mobilize an alliance of global and local voices connecting a diverse range of civil society organizations (CSO’s) representing women, youth, indigenous people, urban poor, digital activists and more.

The alliance aims to influence a world where civil society is heard and respected. A world where civil society co-creates locally relevant, inclusive and fundable climate solutions and is an agent of change and influences policies and practices to the benefit of these solutions.

Info about our VCA program can be found on our website.


In this internship we are looking for a student who can help to strengthen the communication around the VCA program and make the VCA program visible as the outstanding example of inclusive conservation (IC). IC is part of the long term strategy of WWF-NL. This includes internal and external communication. Communication can refer to, and target, a wider public so as to put attention to VCA as an example of Inclusive Conservation and the importance of it. But also, it refers to fundraising and communicating to and influencing the government.

  • collecting and sorting information from the field areas of the VCA Program
  • updating the communication strategy and making information more visible and accessible
  • supporting colleagues with information for eg. reporting, lobbying and fundraising
  • maintaining the website/newsletters and weekly announcements, and any other relevant communication material
  • (co)-organizing important events, both online and in-person.
