Do you feel a passion for the issues of agriculture and sustainability in the poorest countries?
Do you want to lend your skills to help us drive a global understanding of what works, and what doesn’t work, for the world’s smallholder farmers?
COSA began with a handful of volunteers committed to finding globally comparable metrics for understanding sustainability in agriculture. Today, as a nonprofit organization operating at the forefront of sustainability, COSA thrives on the gift of skilled volunteers to work together with us in creating a better world.
For Coralee McNee, volunteering with COSA “allows me to double task researching sustainability and networking for my new career, as well as helping COSA reach its goals. It’s a win-win.”
Coralee, who lives in Philadelphia, USA, was inspired by local food justice activists to chart a course out of her career in engineering and into new studies that explore human relationships with land. She is studying economics, soil science, land reparations and USDA policies, with the intention of weaving these fields together in a way that benefits both people and the land, and using data analysis and visual communication to better inform policy decisions. In between volunteering for COSA and studying, she works in freelance graphic design.
A volunteer since 2019, she is supporting COSA’s communication efforts. Thank you, Coralee!
