Intro

In deze periode zal dit Award Winning Design & Thinklab een campagne starten om een compleet nieuwe soort ‘natuurbeweging’ te lanceren die de relatie tussen mensen, technologie en natuur onder de loep neemt, en daar inspirerende nieuwe producten en visualisaties omheen bedenkt. Deze campagne richt zich in eerste instantie op een Nederlands publiek, en zal zo spoedig mogelijk ook internationaal gelanceerd worden. Voor de Nederlandse lancering zijn we op zoek naar een stagiair marketingcommunicatie die meehelpt om de campagne tot een groot succes te maken.

Next Nature Network is gevestigd in Amsterdam. We werken vooral met freelance ontwerpers, kunstenaars en wetenschappers waarvan meestal de helft afkomstig is uit het buitenland. Afgelopen oktober won NNN de Dutch Design Award voor onderzoek met het Kweekvlees-boek.

– Beheren van alle inkomende pr- en promotie-aanvragen
– Onderhouden van perscontacten, organiseren van (pers)presentaties en schrijven van persberichten
