Friends of the Earth International (FoEI) is looking for a new enthusiastic "Info-request" volunteer, who will help us to deal with frequently asked questions and specific requests from mostly external sources by e-mail. You will also be asked to handle incoming messages via our social media channels and respond or redirect them as appropriate. Other occasional tasks may also become part of your work for us, depending on availability, enthusiasm and your own preferences.
If you are fluent in English, can communicate well in writing and are available at least one day a week to come to our office in Amsterdam (city center), please contact us attaching your CV and stating your availability. Spanish and French speakers are particularly encouraged to apply. This is an unpaid position but travel costs will be refunded.

Friends of the Earth International is the world's largest grassroots environmental network, uniting 75 national member groups and some 5,000 local activist groups on every continent. With over 2 million members and supporters around the world, we campaign on today's most urgent environmental and social issues. We challenge the current model of economic and corporate globalization, and promote solutions that will help to create environmentally sustainable and socially just societies. Find out more about Friends of the Earth International in the About FoEI section.
Friends of the Earth International (FoEI) Secretariat in Amsterdam is the administrative center for the FoEI Federation. We coordinate cooperation among our member groups, but all Friends of the Earth member groups operate independently.
We can't afford to pay you, but we can help out with reasonable travelling expenses, and it's great experience. Please note that we prefer our volunteers to work from the Friends of the Earth International office in Amsterdam. We regret that we do not have the resources to respond to open job solicitations.
Volunteering with your local member group
Many Friends of the Earth groups couldn't exist without the generous support of volunteers. If you want to get involved with one of our 75 members please contact them directly. Find your closest member group and get in touch.
