Tag: Environmental Internship

How much do you know about the environment? Luckily, environmental awareness is growing in the Western world. But shouldn’t we be supporting countries with fewer options as well? Plant your seeds of success with an environmental internship in Africa!

For example, Cape Town has some real urban challenges that you can learn a lot from. Water is scarce. That means you have to challenge yourself during an environmental internship, to make sure you’re making the most of that water.

Additionally, you get a chance to really make a difference. Your time and efforts will help achieve something worthwhile, which can be hugely rewarding! It’s an opportunity to experience the cultural differences and see what life is like for a large part of South Africa’s urban population.

We are always happy to help you find the perfect environmental internship in Africa. Let’s find you a great experience together! Get started by reading about the experiences of our previous interns. Make your impact now!
