World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the world’s leading conservation organization, seeks a Program Analyst Intern working with WWF’s Food and Agriculture program.
The production and consumption of food constitutes the biggest environmental threat to our planet. Eliminating waste and shifting consumption patterns represents our biggest opportunity to establish sustainable and regenerative food systems. Addressing food waste is critical – from field - to fork - to landfill. WWF’s Food Waste program is focused on institutional engagement and behavior change with private and public-sector partners. Our goal is to increase the speed and scale of solutions that make a more sustainable future possible. We accomplish this by convening science-based, multi-stakeholder groups to build awareness and consensus around urgent issues and trends and develop approaches to advance innovation and accelerate change at scale. This internship provides an opportunity for an undergraduate student to learn more about environmental sustainability, specifically food waste prevention and recovery, by working on an initiative that is focused on analyzing global solutions related to food system efficiency and consumption.
This internship will work directly with the WWF Food Waste program team and will support ongoing research efforts with specific focus on the school Food Waste Warrior program, our hospitality and restaurant industry programs, the food retailing industry, and may also support farm level work in support of our No Food Left Behind series. This position will be a great educational experience and may help pilot interventions with private sector partners that attempt to find food waste prevention best practices.
