OtherWise stimulates critical engagement by questioning the status quo and exploring alternative pathways towards a more environmentally and socially just world. It is about questioning the dominant ways of doing things, giving voice to people on the ground, learning about alternatives, and getting inspired by promising people-driven initiatives. People-driven initiatives by citizens, communities, grassroots organizations and farmers continuously emerge in the face of social and environmental injustice. OtherWise puts these initiatives in the spotlight during our excursions, debates, workshops and lectures, thereby helping to transform towards a more just and balanced society.


OtherWise works with two coordinators, the board of the Foundation, and enthusiastic student-volunteers and project-assistants; each group has a role in fulfilling the organisation’s responsibilities, governance, and learning processes, enabling the foundation to develop constantly higher levels of performance and to keep contributing to a thriving WUR community.


Currently OtherWise is looking for a new coordinator. Together with the board the coordinators create and carry out the yearly workplan. It is a flexible job of 16 hours a week. The position will be for a minimum of 6 month and ideally beginning in September, based at our office in Wageningen.
