We are looking for volunteers to develop posters and social media banners for World Wildlife Day 2021 (WWD2021). The designs will be used for and distributed as part of the outreach materials for the 2021 World Wildlife Day celebrations, under the theme: "Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet". Digital illustrations are preferred. The selected designs should illustrate this theme and communicate its key message: forests and forest species are essential to the livelihoods and social and economic well-being of millions of people around the world - particularly to the indigenous peoples and local communities who live within or close to forested areas and most directly rely on them and their wildlife. Posters and banners will be promoted on the social platforms of the CITES Secretariat, the official World Wildlife Day accounts and website, and those of partner organizations. Volunteers will be credited and linked to on all platforms.

    About World Wildlife Day: In December 2013, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 3 March as World Wildlife Day. The CITES Secretariat was designated as the facilitator for the global celebration of the day. Each year, the Secretariat is joined by other major UN and civil society organizations in organizing and promoting the event along a central theme. Useful Links: World Wildlife Day 2020 Posters: ; World Wildlife Day 2019 Posters: ; World Wildlife Day 2018: ; World Wildlife Day Website outreach materials, including logos in all six languages: ; CITES Secretariat Press release on the theme of WWD2021: any questions about WWD, CITES or the assignment, get in touch with Francisco Perez, Programme Support Officer (Communications) at the CITES Secretariat.

  • Volunteers: 2 needed

  • 6-10 hours per week / 7 weeks

    Volunteers should have experience in graphic design. Design formats should be similar to those of previous posters used for the WWD - landscape or square. All posters and banners should include the WWD logo, the 2021 theme ("Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet") and the hashtag #WWD2021. The final versions should be able to accommodate the WWD logo and theme in all six UN languages. Ideally, we aim to have the final designs ready by late January, but the sooner the better.
