Trainee campaigners - 8 weeks to save the bees

Posted by Friends of the Earth

Location Newcastle, TYNE and WEAR

Job Description

Want to take action to protect and connect with nature? We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help with The Bee Cause campaign at a crucial time.

Bees are essential to our survival as pollinators of hundreds of different crops as well as of plants providing habitats for countless other species. In Spring 2012 Friends of the Earth launched a campaign - The Bee Cause - aimed at halting bee decline and highlighting the importance of nature.

For more information on The Bee Cause please see

We've had great success - the Government has just put out its National Pollinator Strategy this month (March 2014) setting out how it plans to meet this challenge. However, Friends of the Earth believes the Strategy is still too weak on issues like pesticide use, intensive farming, new housing developments and funding for bee-friendly projects.

We now have an eight week consultation period to persuade them to make it stronger. And we'd really love your help with this. Even one Bee Action in Newcastle in the next 8 weeks could make all the difference.

Things you could do include:

- organizing an informal gathering of interested local people
- a fun activity-driven campaign stall at a local event
- promoting or planting wild flower areas in your community.
- or you might have your own ideas and we'd be really keen to hear them.

Who we're looking for?

We're looking for people who can self-start and who want to learn how to bring others together to take action in a good cause. Enthusiasm for nature and the environment is more important than experience.

How we would help you

Each volunteer would have a staff mentor who would help you plan your Bee Action through telephone and e-mail coaching as well as providing information and resources and connecting you to other local volunteers. 

Do let us know if you'd like to take action with Friends of the Earth and we'll be in touch with you to help you get started.

You should never provide bank or financial information, or make any form of payment, when applying for a job. If you are ever asked to do this by a recruiter on our site, please email: [email protected]
