How thinking of ourselves differently can change the future of our food system
Food citizenship is a movement of organisations working across the UK food and farming sector that believe in treating people as citizens, not consumers.
As food citizens, we believe in the power of people. We want to and can have a positive influence on food and farming systems. We know that we express more of our selves as citizens than we do as consumers. When given that opportunity, we feel empowered to create positive change in and for our community. We act in keeping with our values and include other people. We want to do the right thing for society to thrive now and in the future. We are resilient, persistent, inclusive, trusting, hopeful.
This website is a hub for the food citizenship movement. It is a space to share tools, approaches and experiences to support larger a shift to the food citizen mindset. It is run by the Food Ethics Council.
The Food Ethics Council is recruiting for a part-time food citizenship coordinator.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a small but dynamic team in an organisation that has been at the forefront of thinking on ethical concerns in food and farming in the UK since 1998.
This is a part-time (15hrs/ week) role on a fixed-term (one-year contract). We need someone with drive and creativity to develop and implement a plan for growing the food citizenship movement, helping it to flourish.
You will be responsible for co-ordinating work on building the movement and working closely with other members of the team. You must be prepared to promote the shift from consumerism to food citizenship, showcase examples of organisations demonstrating a food citizenship mindset, manage relationships and bring ideas for how we can grow the movement and formalise partnerships so that others co-host the movement.
Every One Every Day is the largest participatory project in the world and a brilliant example of what can be achieved when you harness the skills present in a community.
