The European Climate Foundation (ECF) was founded in 2008 as a major philanthropic initiative to help tackle climate change by fostering the development of a low-carbon society at the national, European and global level.
We support over 280 partner organisations to carry out activities that contribute to the public debate on climate action, drive urgent and ambitious policy in support of the objectives of the Paris Agreement and help deliver a socially responsible transition to a net-zero emissions economy and sustainable society in Europe and around the world.
About the role
In December 2020 the UK will play host to a meeting of countries from around the world to further international cooperation on climate action. The meeting, COP26, is a critical moment for the Paris Agreement as it is the moment when countries agreed to update their climate action efforts by enhancing their objectives and concrete measures for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, adapting to climate change, and financing the climate transition.
Working closely with the Director of the International Group and UK Programme in particular, along with other programmes across the European Climate Foundation (ECF), the COP26 Senior Project Manager will play a key role in driving and implementing COP26 strategy and activities. This will involve helping coordinate and manage ECF internal COP26 activities, engaging with a wide variety of partners conducting activities around and directly related to COP26 (including strategic partners, funders and grantees) and engaging with policy makers and officials from UK, European, and International governments.
