Deadline Date: April 05, 2024

Donor Name: The Club of Rome

Grant Size: Not Available

The Club of Rome is currently accepting applications for its Communications Fellowship 2024.

The fellowship is a full-time six-month mentoring programme aimed at increasing the diversity of voices covering sustainability issues and supporting early-career communications professionals who are from underrepresented communities and regions. The successful fellows will be integrated into The Club of Rome communications team, working remotely from their home environment and with one trip to meet members of The Club of Rome team (likely in Europe). The fellowship offers a modest stipend towards living costs and includes work-related travel costs. 

The fellowship aims to establish a network of communication specialists passionate about The Club of Rome across the globe, who can share information and best practice.

The communications fellow will gain experience in communicating complex systems thinking for non-specialist audiences through a variety of platforms including the website, multimedia and social media. The successful candidate will work directly with the communications team assisting with a variety of tasks including web publishing, media relations, event coverage, multimedia, social media and other communication activities.

    • Written and oral fluency in English and a proven ability to understand complex scientific research or systems thinking.
    • Experience with, or interest in, social media, video, photography or other multimedia.
    • Alignment with the beliefs and vision of The Club of Rome.
