About Reimagine Agriculture
We founded Reimagine Agriculture because we saw the opportunity to address pressing agricultural issues that are not currently being given enough attention in Canada. The farming sector is often overlooked in the critical and ongoing conversations surrounding waste and climate change. As agricultural waste and demand for meat, dairy, eggs and other products of animal agriculture continue to grow worldwide, their contributions to the already dire effects of climate change will worsen. Applying our expertise to these critically overlooked issues, Reimagine Agriculture is committed to reducing the negative impacts of these systems, building the changes in Canada that are needed throughout the world.
We accomplish these goals through the primary use of education through knowledge mobilization, building alliances, and policy change. This can be in the form of presentations to various age groups and organizations, national campaigns with democratic engagement, and working with related stakeholders. Our focus is on being effective, using evidence-based reasoning and meeting people where they are. Learn more about us at reimagineagriculture.org
What we are looking for in you
We are still in the developing stages of our financing. We hope to work with someone who can help us focus on building our grant opportunities with the consideration that we are a nonprofit and not a charity and therefore do not have a charity number. We suspect much of our funding will continue to come from a wide range of fields so someone who has experience finding diverse funding is an asset..
It is important to us to work with someone who has a strong understanding of these agricultural issues and a passion to address them. Applicants should be open-minded and thoughtful. It is absolutely not necessary to be vegetarian or vegan for the position (and may even be an asset as that is the primary population we work with).
Interested and eligible applicants can email email@example.com with their resume and cover letter as soon as possible.
