(Freelance) Digital Marketeer | Temporary Position for 6 months | Start date: March

Commonland Foundation is an Amsterdam-based, internationally operating organization working on large-scale and long-term landscape restoration initiatives. And we’re on a mission: to transform 100 million ha of degraded landscapes before 2040 together with other landscape partners, farmers, policymakers, companies, and investors. To make this happen we have developed the ‘4 Returns’ framework. A practical and holistic approach to transform degraded ecosystems into vibrant landscapes and communities by focusing on 4 key returns supported by landscape zones over the course of a single generation, or 20 years.

As an open, driven, and enthusiastic team of professionals, we are all working dedicated to our mission to restore landscapes. We have defined three core values which we strongly recognize ourselves: Empower each otherHonest & Compassionate and Put words into action. We empower and challenge ourselves and colleagues and provide them with the needed support to grow. We are interested in trying to understand the other and tease out misunderstandings if and when they occur. Last but not least, we say what we do: proactive information sharing and gathering as a lot of our work is relevant across teams and relies on cross-team collaboration.
