WWF European Policy Office (EPO) is looking for a 50% consultant to support WWF EPO’s communications and media engagement activities on freshwater, and specifically on a project on hydropower and dam removal.

Start date: October 2020, nine month contract, extendable

The European Policy Office (EPO) communications activities aim to raise awareness of our EU policy priorities among key target audiences and to support WWF network global goals and campaigns at Brussels/EU level. The EPO communications departments is structured, staffed and interlinked with the programmatic objectives to guarantee maximal advocacy efficiency and effectiveness.
Water is essential for human life and a fundamental resource for our nature and our economy. However, freshwater ecosystems are the most threatened on the planet. In the EU, despite major improvements, only 53% of European waters were estimated to reach a healthy status by 2015, missing the target set under the EU’s Water Framework Directive (WFD).
After the success of its #ProtectWater campaign in 2018-2020, resulting in the high water protection standards of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) being maintained, WWF EPO’s advocacy work on freshwater will focus on having this legal framework properly enforced and implemented. Two topics will be particularly central: hydropower, and dam removal.
