Recent News » Fall Communications Intern

EcoAgriculture Partners is a non-profit organization that works internationally to facilitate sustainable food production, rural livelihoods, and environmental conservation globally (www.ecoagriculture.org). The organization does so by developing and promoting integrative approaches to rural landscape management, by engaging in regional and global policy processes, and by supporting the work of our diverse grassroots and international partners.

A centerpiece of EcoAgriculture's work is to facilitate and co-lead the Landscapes for People, Food, and Nature Initiative (LPFN)—a collaborative effort with more than 60 partner organizations to advance and scale-up integrated, multi-stakeholder agricultural landscape approaches worldwide. The Initiative develops and communicates the evidence base for such approaches, fosters cross-sectoral dialogue, and implements a global collaborative action agenda. See peoplefoodandnature.org.

Reporting to the Communications Manager, the intern will support communications activities for EcoAgriculture Partners and the Landscapes for People, Food and Nature Initiative over a negotiable period that can begin immediately. The position is unpaid and interns are expected to work between 24 and 40 hours per week at EcoAgriculture Partners' headquarters in Washington, DC. A stipend of approximately $400/month (depending on time commitment per week) is available.
