Head of Climate Advocacy

Do you want to help make the world a better place with your experience of climate justice advocacy at EU level? The Open Society Foundation is seeking a Head of Climate Advocacy based in Brussels to lead the advocacy of The Open Society European Policy Institute (OSEPI) in promoting climate justice objectives in the EU.

This is a new dimension of the Open Society Foundations’ work in Brussels and will involve developing advocacy to promote an effective, just, and inclusive transition to a zero-carbon economy. That will include influencing climate action to ensure a fair transition, broadening and deepening public participation in climate policy-making, ensuring greater accountability in climate finance, promoting progressive fiscal and investment that serves climate objectives and threading climate and environmental objectives through the EU’s external policies.

The Open Society Foundations works to build vibrant and inclusive democracies whose governments are accountable and open to the participation of all people. We are active in more than 120 countries, making us the world’s largest private funder of independent groups working for justice, democratic governance, and human rights.

The Open Society European Policy Institute is the EU policy and advocacy branch of the Open Society Foundations network, based in Brussels. OSEPI works to influence and inform decision-making on EU laws, policy, funding, and external action to maintain and promote open societies in Europe and beyond.
