A message from the Democracy and Sustainability Platform:

Climate change is here. Unless we change, now, the human species will be battered by heatwaves, droughts, rising seas and extreme weather. Do your part, gain invaluable career experience and earn some extra cash with the Manifesto for Democracy and Sustainability.

Launched this year, the Manifesto takes a different approach to safeguarding the future: we believe sustainability can only be achieved by urgently re-imagining and strengthening our democratic ideas and practices. Equally, democracy cannot last without a sustainable future.

We’re looking for social media Advocates to help spread the word and support our online activities. If you are interested and would like to help manage our Facebook and Twitter accounts, or if you would like to help develop the website, please visit the FDSD website and get in touch by midnight, 10 November 2013.

Our key criteria are simple: you are excited about supporting the goals of the Manifesto and passionate about networking with others in the democracy and sustainability space. We are looking for a commitment of about two to three hours per week for an initial six-month period, and can pay a contribution to living expenses to the tune of a London living wage.

Graham Smith, Professor of Politics at CSD, is a founding member of the Democracy and Sustainability Platform and a trustee of the Foundation for Democracy and Sustainable Development.
