FOREST EUROPE would like to invite you to take part in our current online Tag and Share Instagram campaign: Grow Green Jobs!
The campaign aims at raising awareness among students as well as young professionals in the fields of forestry, natural sciences, agriculture, and agroforestry. We want them to know the existing professions and career paths that are fostering a transition to a more sustainable economy in Europe. We want to inspire students and young professionals, and expect them to share their own experiences with sustainable jobs in the forest. Grow Green Jobs will showcase jobs from all over Europe in the format of one-minute videos.
The campaign will be launched on 11 February 2022 to observe the International Day of Women and Girls in Science and will be running for some months.
It is here where cooperation with student association and interest groups, campus radios, podcast and professional networks plays a key role. We would like you to help us spread the word on social media, newsletters, etc. as well as to broadcast the campaign’s audio ads. We are producing social media content and radio ads to broaden the campaign’s reach. This material introduces concrete jobs and provides information on how to take part in the Instagram campaign.
In return, we would not only tag you on the videos recorded, but could also assist you in reaching experts for your reportages/news on sustainable forest management, forest risk, Green Jobs and forest education. Our network of experts enables us to cover a wide array of topics in a variety of locations all around Europe. We look forward to having you on board and together Grow Green Jobs!
Please have a look at FOREST EUROPE’s social media accounts and do not hesitate to contact Dario Berrio, who is leading the campaign, at dario.berrio (at) foresteurope.org if you have any questions. We will be happy to arrange an online meeting to discuss the campaign in more detail.
