Care Prize Research Specialist
Treasure Earth is pleased to announce the appointment of William Jones as Care Prize Research Specialist for Treasure Earth effective 21 July 2021. Will has just graduated from the University of Leeds having studied Classical Civilisation and English with honours and is now preparing to begin his masters in International Relations at the University of Bristol. His ambition is to forge a career in humanitarian aid with the United Nations or a similar international agency and he looks forward to applying his skills to our Peace Prize and Climate Prize Campaigns researching associated causes for which he shares our passion.
Throughout his first year at university, he also studied Arabic to learn basic language skills and to study the culture of the Middle East and he plans to continue his travels around the world to learn about other cultures. He had planned to study international law, cooperation and human rights at Nagoya University in Japan, while learning Japanese and about Japanese culture before lockdown put this on hold.
Will also shares our commitment to youth and believes in the positive impact youth can bring to the future and is keen to research initiatives striving to benefit youth, therefore he looks forward to starting his first research project working with our Creative Team on the Treasure Earth Care Prize addressing some of the critical issues facing youth for positive outcomes.
