We are currently seeking a cross-disciplinary and dedicated professional to be part of our Food & Agriculture Campaign team in China. The Food & Agriculture team is campaigning for a shift from our current destructive chemical intensive agriculture model to one that centers on ecological agriculture in China, which ensures we grow enough healthy food not only for us but also for future generations without harming the environment. If you care about and have a sharp view on China’s social development and environmental problems, if you care about agriculture and rural development, if you have concerns on food safety problem, if you hold a strategic mind and have solid experience on project planning and execution, if you have expertise and skills on communication…we look forward to having you join our team!
