About the Role

We are working on Veg Politics! Do you want to join? ProVeg puts plant-based topics on the political agenda. A strong area of focus is international organizations in general, specifically the United Nations system. Together with our partners, we are working on making the switch to more plant-based diets easier and more realistic for as many people as possible and on communicating the potentials of plant-based products and lifestyles for tackling various policy areas. We are looking for support to help achieve these ambitious goals. The US Intern in International Policy and Advocacy supports the preparation and execution of political work and lobbying activities aimed at communicating the potentials of plant-based products and lifestyles to political decision-makers and other relevant stakeholders at the international political sphere.

About the Organisation

ProVeg International is a food awareness organisation working to transform the global food system by replacing animal-based products with plant-based and cultured alternatives. We work with decision-making bodies, companies, investors, the media, and the general public to help the world transition to a society and economy that are less reliant on animal agriculture and more sustainable for all humans, animals, and our planet. We have offices in nine countries across four continents and are active around the world. ProVeg has a permanent observer status with the UNFCCC, special consultative status with ECOSOC, is accredited for UNEA, and has received the United Nations’ Momentum for Change Award.
