Position description

Carbon Bombs are the more than 400 biggest oil, gas and coal projects globally, which could each emit more than 1 gigatonne of CO2 over their lifetime. Defusing them is imperative to avoid runaway climate change.

The UK-based Project Coordinator will activate and support climate movement actors in the UKto build opposition towards the extraction of these gigantic projects.

We are looking for an enthusiastic part-time project coordinator who will help make the carbon bombs framing mainstream in the climate movement and, through this, contribute to the effort to stop the biggest fossil fuel projects.
