Project Manager / Relationship Manager
Army of Volunteers for Earth
Army of Volunteers for Earth is a non-profit international organization working to combat climate change. Our organization is made up of passionate volunteers from all over the world, who share the common goal to make an impact and save Mother Earth.
We are looking to grow our team and add more team members who share our mission - to do whatever is necessary to reestablish the equilibrium that will guarantee humans and other species on Earth a safe future.
Army of Volunteers is looking for a Relationship Manager to help:
- Research climate change solutions that reduce emissions of GHGs into the atmosphere
- Support other organizations working on climate change, looking for synergies that can make these organizations more effective
- Carry out our own climate change projects
Our first project will be to create a global network of volunteers who promote "climate friendly" products and technologies. There will not be just "one solution" for the climate crisis, but many, probably hundreds of solutions. We will look for organizations that have developed products that contribute to the climate solutions and help them reach a global market by educating users of the products through our global network of volunteers.
Our first manufacturing partner is a supplier of equipment for processing municipal waste into useful products while generating electricity. This will keep the waste out of landfills where it decomposes and emits greenhouse gases, which worsen the climate crisis.
We will be adding a number of manufacturing partners in the near future.
This is a non-paid position. This is a virtual position. We will work with your schedule and availability.
