Environmental Action Manager

Targets alone will do nothing to address the ecological and climate crisis and if, after COP26, you are feeling that now is the time for actoin, then read on…

As part of the Roots and Branches project Manchester Museum and the Carbon Literacy Project are recruiting a new Environmental Action Manager who will oversee a new Co-working Hub for Cultural Environmental Action and establish best practice across the museum sector.

The Museum’s Top Floor will be home to a new Co-Working Hub for cultural environmental action.

Imagine a place that brings people together: somewhere safe to talk, think, dream, imagine, plan, or act. Imagine a space where individuals and groups can gather around what matters most to them. Imagine a job where you get to turn this idea into a reality. Imagine no more because this is our vision for the Co-Working Hub, to be located on the Top Floor of Manchester Museum.

What might happen if care, emotions and action drive our response to the climate and ecological crises? If you’re interested in figuring this out with us, then you may have found your dream job! The Environmental Action Manager will undertake exploratory and experimental work to develop new museum narratives and programming through which climate change is understood to be as much of a cultural and social justice issue as it is scientific and environmental.
