FOREST EUROPE would like to invite you to participate in our current online Instagram campaign Tag and Share: Grow Green Jobs! The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness among students and young professionals in the fields of forestry, natural sciences, agriculture and agroforestry.

We want to make young people aware of existing professions and career paths that promote the transition to a more sustainable economy in Europe. We want to inspire students and young professionals, and we hope they will share their own experiences with sustainable jobs in the forest. Grow Green Jobs will showcase jobs from across Europe in the format of one-minute videos.

How can you help in the campaign?

Cooperation with student associations and interest groups, campus radios, podcasts and professional networks play a key role in this campaign. We would like you to help us spread the word on social media, newsletters, etc., as well as to spread the campaign’s audio spots. We are producing social media content and radio spots to extend the reach of the campaign. This material features specific jobs and provides information on how to get involved in the Instagram campaign.

In exchange, we would not only tag you in the recorded videos, but we could also help you reach out to experts for your reports/news on sustainable forest management, forest risk, green jobs and forest education. Our network of experts allows us to cover a wide range of topics in various locations across Europe.

We look forward to having you on board and to grow green jobs together. Please have a look at FOREST EUROPE’s social media accounts and feel free to contact Dario Berrio, who is leading the campaign, at dario.berrio (at) foresteurope.org if you have any questions.
