The deadline to apply for this volunteering opportunity has passed. Please take a look at other opportunities to volunteer with CAFOD.

Information about the role

Climate change, living more sustainably and caring for creation are crucial parts of our faith. This new international volunteer opportunity will enable you to gain new experiences, meet other volunteers from across Europe and play your part in creating a better world.

CAFOD is looking for up to six volunteers, aged 18-40, to become climate champions.

Skills and training

As a CAFOD climate champion, you will take part in a three-day international workshop on sustainable living with other Catholic young people from across Europe during summer 2017. There are two possible workshops - Portugal (9-13 May 2017) and Belgium (1-5 July).

On your return, you will be supported to raise awareness about climate change, sustainable living and CAFOD campaigns in your parish or other local community.

We are looking for people with an interest in sustainability and/or campaigning, who are enthusiastic to learn more, and preferably who have been involved with CAFOD before.

We’d love to receive applications from as wide a range of people as possible and we’ll be looking for volunteers with a mix of skills, experience and backgrounds to take part.
