The CAG Project is looking for an inquisitive and enthusiastic person for a funded internship to look at impact modelling around community action on climate change. This new position, which is for a fixed term of one year, would suit a newly qualified graduate or Masters student with an interest in community based sustainability projects and some experience of data management, monitoring and evaluation, including a good working knowledge of Excel.
The CAG Project is a network of voluntary groups in Oxfordshire at the forefront of community led climate change action. CAGs organise events and initiatives to raise awareness and take action on climate change issues including waste reduction, promoting the 3Rs (reduce, reuse and recycle), carbon reduction, sustainable transport, and food, energy and water issues to live a more sustainable and less resource dependent life in their local community. The CAG support team has been providing hands-on, day to day help and advice for groups since 2001. For more information on the CAG Project visit www.cagoxfordshire.org.uk
The overarching aim of this pioneering project is to calculate and measure the impact community led activities have on carbon reduction, which will enable communities to focus scarce resources on high impact activities alongside supporting funding bodies to identify a return on their investment. The project will seek to measure what has historically been considered difficult; to measure or attribute carbon reduction to specific community activities.
The role is also designed to give the successful candidate access to the environmental and community sectors, up-skilling them through an innovative and unique project which will put them in an excellent position to continue to work within those sectors once this role has come to an end.
