Create a global justice-based ‘Solutions campaigning framework’ for 350.org

Summary
350.org is looking to engage a consultant to develop a campaigning framework that provides staff across our international organization with support and guidance on developing campaigns related to Solutions to the climate crisis. The scope of these campaigns includes campaigning for renewable energy systems, technologies and investments; policy or political campaigns that set the landscape for a just transition; and local campaigns that centre community development of and training on implementing Solutions.

The purpose of this campaigning framework will be to provide a common definition for 350.org's diverse range of Solutions campaigns, as well as a set of guidelines and recommendations on potential advocacy plans, campaigning approaches, targets and calls to action to support and connect Solutions campaigning across 350.org.

Background

There is increasing appetite within 350.org to set a container and direction for our Solutions work, with a guiding framework, a common definition and recommendations on how 350.org can add value to the movement’s landscape of solutions campaigning, to connect and inform the Solutions campaigning that is now proliferating across the organisation.

We have previously hired a consultant (in 2018) to create an organisational ‘Solutions do’s and don’ts’ internal document, which needs refreshing and updating and can help form the basis of this framework.

The Global Campaigns Team at 350.org is therefore looking for a consultant to further develop this work and create a global Solutions campaigning framework for 350.org.

Subject of this project

The focus of this project brief is a global Solutions campaigning framework for 350.org. This will involve creating a framework for 350.org's campaigners to use as they develop Solutions campaigns.

This framework could also potentially include external, movement-facing pieces: for example, guidance on an approach to a local campaigning model within the Solutions frame, that can be offered out for use by our partners and the broader climate movement.

Desired outcomes

This project’s priority objective: to provide 350.org staff with guidance and recommendations to inform our decisions on developing Solutions campaigns across different regions and at the global level, offering a common framework to ensure a fundamental thread of continuity and adherence to a shared set of guidelines on our Solutions campaigning across the organization.

We are also looking to understand what solutions campaigning is already happening in the regions where we work (including Africa, Asia, Latin America, Pacific as well as Europe and North America) and how we can add specific value as 350.org, ensuring close alignment to our purpose and values as we continue to develop our Solutions work.

With this framework and information, we look to chart 350.org's role in driving forward a clear path towards a Just Transition (i.e. https://climatejusticealliance.org/just-transition) and develop strong, aligned Solutions campaigning across the organisation.

Project deliverables

The consultant(s) will deliver:

  • A compilation of recommendations and guidelines on Solutions campaigning (re: technological and policy related solutions) to the climate crisis, designed in consultation with key stakeholders across 350.org as well as external experts;
  • Well-documented research benchmarking Solutions campaigning within the climate movement, identifying 350.org's value add in this area of campaigning, with clear recommendations;
  • A campaigning framework that helps campaigners identify potential strengths, pitfalls and considerations as they develop Solutions campaigns across regions as well as at the global level, and provides a common set of guidelines and recommendations for this work.

The deliverables will clearly outline what was considered, what criteria were applied, what were the findings and what the consultant’s (consultants’) recommendations are.

Final deliverables should be submitted no later than 17 December 2021. Deadlines are negotiable depending on availability.
