Position description

The Institute for Ecological Civilization (EcoCiv) is a 501(c)3 non-profit that works internationally to support systemic approaches and solutions to long-term sustainability by developing collaborations among government, business, and religious leaders and among scholars, activists, and policy makers. We build effective partnerships across social sectors through consultations, think-tank gatherings, and policy engagement.


Humanity is at an important turning point. All over the world people are rising up to call for long-term, cross-sector solutions that address our major social and environmental challenges through a transformation of the systems and structures of society. Despite shared concerns and a common vision, many of these efforts remain fragmented and marginalized. EcoCiv is developing a program to help connect the dots of these converging global movements. As the Global Network on Ecological Civilization Project Manager you will be responsible for managing all aspects of coordinating a global network for ecological civilization. 


The successful candidate will be deeply familiar with network thinking and will have experience at locating, cultivating, and empowering networks. An outgoing “people person,” he or she will be able to recognize converging and diverging visions, to host productive discussions, and to communicate the visions and achievements of scholars and activists around the world. 


In collaboration with other EcoCiv Team members, roles for this position include, but are not limited to: 

  • Research and identify important voices (individuals and organizations) that support the general vision of ecological civilization;
  • locate examples of transitions toward ecological civilization occurring around the globe;
  • meet, interview, and brainstorm with individuals within our networks and persons not yet known to us, in order to determine categories of emerging networks relevant to ecological civilization and individuals and organizations within them;
  • organize a database of potential members of emerging networks for ecological civilization;
  • organize and facilitate Zoom meetings with high-level representatives from around the world;
  • coordinate with EcoCiv Communications department to publicize important initiatives;
  • work with management to catalyze f2f meetings, press conferences, shared projects and collaborations, funding opportunities, etc.;
  • represent the interests of EcoCiv as one voice among this global network of networks;
  • work as a team member and participate in team calls on a regular basis via Zoom.



  • BA in environmental studies desired (or related fields relevant to the goal of achieving long-term sustainable solutions for the planet and its inhabitants)
  • Flexible hours (sometimes outside normal working hours due to time zones and the global reach of our organization)
  • Strong interpersonal skills
  • Strong and demonstrated written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong and demonstrated computer/technology skills
  • Strong time management and self-motivation skills
  • Able to work remotely
