Looking for further experience in communication, events planning, environmental education or all of these? Then read on, because we have a fantastic opportunity, offering a People Engagement Internship which runs from March to September 2018
At RSPB's Forsinard Flows we work hard to restore the peatlands by removing plantations and blocking drainage systems. It is a large scale effort to help the fight against global warming. The peat stored in blanket bogs is one of the most important carbon stocks globally and people deserve to find out more about it. Therefore, our people engagement work is of great importance.
With the Flows to the Future project, we connect people with the peatlands of the Flow Country. This is a diverse and exciting project, reaching out to people and schools locally, as well as to online audiences and to exhibition visitors throughout the country.
We are in an exciting phase of our project with many milestones already secured. We are now entering the legacy phase and also have some exciting plans coming up involving art, roadside interpretation and the exhibition which is currently on tour through the country. We have secured a wide interest among primary schools in the region and next year will see further development and delivery of lessons. This school work is a mixture of outreach and outdoor learning.
Care for the environment is grounded in a personal connection with the natural world so people engagement is a vital element of nature conservation. Would you like to be part of our team to connect people with the peatlands of the Flow Country, or know more about the role? Then download and read this internship's information pack (PDF).
