WWF Zambia is looking for an Event Manager to facilitate scheduled communication activities for 2020. Deadline 5th December, 2019.
Introduction:The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is the world’s leading independent conservation organisation with a global network in over 100 countries. Our mission is to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which people live in harmony with nature. We have been working in Zambia since 1962 organizing our efforts across People, Freshwater, Wildlife and Forests.
Nature is in crisis like never before. The rate of global loss of nature during the past 50 years is unprecedented in human history. And yet, intact natural systems are imperative to all our futures. Nature not only benefits us by providing our food, water and clean air, it is also our strongest ally against climate change. Earth Hour 2020 is a key time to raise our voices and make nature matter. During the lead up to and on the night of Earth Hour on 28 March 2020, we are asking people around the world to stand in solidarity to show the world they care about the future of our planet. As a buildup to Earth Hour, the Freshwater Programme plans to host various events to raise awareness about its work in relation to reversing nature loss and calling for action against climate change.
