The FCRN is looking for interns to evaluate and develop the networking functions of the website. Do you have an interest in food system sustainability and want to gain some practical work experience in this field? Do you want to get an in depth view of the workings of a global online network and contribute to analyse challenges of online collaboration and networking? We are looking for people who have a diversity of experiences – both people with technical experience working with websites (using website tools focused on design and functionality) as well as people who are more familiar with communications and how networks and online interactions function. We thus also welcome people who are relatively new to working with websites and who can therefore contribute a beginner’s-eye view and an ‘outsider’s perspective.

The Environmental Change Institute is pleased to announce a new internship available to any currently matriculated Oxford students with Good Food Oxford, a Sustainable Food Cities initiative that aims to identify and catalyse actions by individuals and organisations that will promote a healthy, fair, ethical and environmentally sustainable food system in and around Oxford.

Good Food Oxford is offering a placement for an intern to help develop monitoring and evaluation modeling to measure the impact of their work. The intern will be required to compile background data and statistics on their three strategy areas in order to form a baseline from which to establish measurable deliverables. They will then have the opportunity to work closely with the team to establish monitoring and evaluation models, and feed into their policy and strategy work.

To find out more, please read the Good Food Oxford Specification or contact Emma Weisbord, the Sustainability Internship Programme Coordinator.
