SIANI is a Sida-funded network with the mission to inform and develop new knowledge about the importance of agriculture for poverty reduction and sustainable development. By providing information on current research, innovations and proven experiences, the network compiles a broad evidence base for decision-makers. The network has more than 4000 members from all over the world. In Sweden, SIANI coordinates cross-sector learning events involving actors from government, civil society, the private sector, academia and international organisations.
The network is a dynamic platform for an actualised discussion on the 2030 Agenda and the issues related to hunger, nutritious food, and agriculture for economic development within the planetary boundaries. Through the SIANI youth, SIANI seeks to engage various youth groups to engage more in issues related to sustainable food systems.
SIANI is an independent network hosted by the Stockholm Environment Institute, SEI, a prestigious global environmental institute dedicated to bridging environmental research to decision-makers. The SIANI Secretariat has a long experience leading and promoting dialogue through seminars, supporting expert groups and communication via the web and social media. Doing your internship at SIANI also means taking part in SEI’s exciting and international ambience and activities.
Working with SIANI means that you work with communication around one of the world’s biggest challenges; how can we help achieve the goal of no one going hungry by 2030 through sustainable, climate-resilient agriculture? How do we ensure that the world’s precious resources are sufficient to produce food for the world’s growing population? What food should we produce smartly so everyone can eat a nutritious diet without exceeding the planet’s limits?
You will be expected to work with our social media channels. You will learn how to write blogs and articles, update the SIANIs website and help organise our exciting seminars. You will have great opportunities to network and participate in SIANI’s work in different locations in Sweden.
As an intern, you will work independently with the support of our talented staff. We value our interns’ perspectives and experiences and appreciate interns who take the initiative. You will also have the chance to work with and develop our youth initiative SIANI Youth, an initiative for young people (aged 16-30) both at home in Sweden and globally.
You will also have the chance to follow global climate and environmental research at first-hand. We offer a dynamic international, and multicultural workplace.
