Sr. Executive, Fellowship for Climate Action

(Monday January 20, 2020)

Job Description:

Anant National University in Ahmedabad is launching a first-of-its-kind Fellowship for Climate Action – a global program based in India for climate change solutionaries.

While it is good that more people than ever before are aware of climate change, the Fellowship for Climate Action will shift the focus from the unprecedented level of climate anxiety we see around us today to offering thousands of people ways to be part of the solution to mitigate climate change.

The long term mission of the Fellowship is to create a community – offline and online – of climate change trailblazers who work together and cross-pollinate each other’s work with ideas and expertise across sectors, regions, and generations. Our endeavour is to include as many people who wish to be part of the solution to climate change. The Fellowship for Climate Action is designed such that those who can dedicate a year of their life, whether they are working advanced professionals, entrepreneurs, or young climate activists, can all benefit from it.

The Fellowship for Climate Action is a one year immersive programme based on a mentor-mentee framework that then feeds into a unique online global education platform to counter climate change. The Fellowship will begin on 10 August 2020, based in Ahmedabad. The Fellowship cohort each year will include two types of fellows. One, those who demonstrate a sustained interest, outstanding transferable skills, and some work in countering climate change. Second, those who are advanced professionals, well established in their domain, and wish to leverage their skills and experience towards solutions for climate change. Fellows who are advanced professionals will need to complete only 3 of the total 6 terms of the Fellowship. This will allow them the flexibility to continue to work alongside. 75% of the Fellowship classes will be held at locations where solutions for climate change are being implemented and at locations that are hard hit by climate change. All fellows will also work closely with a mentor, chosen from an illustrious board of mentors from the world over who are supporting the Fellowship.

We are looking to hire a Sr. Executive for the Fellowship for Climate Action who will curate relationships with relevant organisations and lead the placements for the Fellows for Climate Action.
