THE GREEN INSTITUTE INTERNSHIP (Join the New Tribe of Sustainability Leaders!)
DEADLINE: 19TH JANUARY 2021
The Green Institute Internship is a 6-month innovative virtual program for garnering knowledge, skills and experience in the field of sustainability. The program aims to nurture college students and fresh graduates (not more than two years), thereby bridging the gap between education and career development. It does this by offering on-the-job-training and experience for effective employee development.
A capstone project is required in partial fulfilment of the program, which is geared at providing sustainable and innovative solutions to existing local challenges. Participants are expected to carry out an innovative solution ranging from policies, advocacy or education to products, services and business models that address a particular challenge. The project is judged based on innovativeness, depth of impact, and scalability. The participant with the best community project is awarded a grant of $1000.
The Internship program builds participants by empowering them through capacity building and critical thinking skills to become eco-conscious, ethical and entrepreneurial leaders in their communities and the world at large.
