We run South Africa's green newspaper, the GREEN TIMES. We are a non-profit organisation focused on educating Southern Africa on their extremely vulnerable position in terms of climate change and how to mitigate and adapt to this crisis. Anyone keen on helping any aspects of online publishing and marketing is most welcome to join us. As we need to train up all volunteers we are not so keen on short stays - this is not worth the extra work. So ideal for us is a 6 months commitment, or at the very least 3 months.
Help with Eco project
Help with Computers / internet
This is really a position for a writer or social media enthusiast. Helping in home office, which entails everything to do with an online publication. Attending eco events, writing up stories, finding adverts, you name it ... marketing, graphics, etc. We have a lovely garden, grow veggies, keep chickens, natural pool - we try to practice what we preach. Of course it's a work in progress. We are 5 minutes from the beach and have glorious mountains around. Best part of South AFrica. Safe, stimulating and passionate environment.
English and a little German. Understand Dutch, as our local language Afrikaans is very close.
Comfortable house with garden. Room with bed and computer, etc. Loads of friendly animals. You have to be an earthy person to fit in here, but at the same time organised and committed to making a serious difference to a planet in crisis.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
