Internship Assignment: Green volunteers
At BrabantNEXT, we have several internships for different assignments, at different levels associate/bachelor/university. We work on social issues for our province of Noord Brabant with the aim that the population of Brabant can enjoy living and working here. What the internships have in common is working together on innovative solutions. We research and we experiment. We develop diverse concepts and create impact.
Internships at BrabantNEXT are always project-based and team-based. We team up students from different backgrounds, with different experiences and talents. Under the guidance of innovation specialists and other experts, they explore ideas and new perspectives.
Internship assignments at BrabantNEXT last ± five months. We are flexible in terms of your attendance. You will mainly be working at the Werkplace, our inspiring and creative hub on Tramkade or at the provincial government building in 's-Hertogenbosch. But working from home occasionally or at school is also an option. In the morning, we start the day together, then you get to work with your team. Around noon, we have lunch together and go for a walk, for those who feel like it. Every month there are various activities and events to participate in and there is time for a game of table football or a Friday afternoon drink. All interns at BrabantNEXT receive an internship allowance of €350 gross per month for a 36-hour workweek.
Are you creative, self-directed, and can you look at a complex question with an open mind? Do you enjoy working in a multidisciplinary team on a single project and would you like to share your talent with others? Apply for the internship assignment below, all disciplines are welcome.
Assignment: Green volunteers
How to engage young nature lovers to work for the conservation of Brabant's nature?
The province is very happy with all the green volunteers who work to manage, monitor and draw attention to our nature in Brabant. This helps us to preserve the natural areas and beautiful landscapes and creates support and awareness. However, the province is afraid that if the group of green volunteers does not become larger and more diverse in composition, there may not be enough volunteers/citizens committed to nature in the long run.
Research has shown that there is a large group of 'potential green volunteers' who would like to do 'something' for nature. Young people in particular belong to this group and they are the ones who benefit from a healthy, green and pleasant living environment in the long term. But unfortunately, this group is still insufficiently involved and/or reached by 'green volunteer organisations' in an effective way. Consider, for instance, visibility on the social media channels of this target group. It is therefore important that we approach young people who are already interested in nature by definition in an appropriate way. And that we give this group an important role in achieving our nature goals.
Does this excite you, and would you like to think and work on this issue in an innovative way from within the provincial organisation together with partner organisations? Then this internship is for you!
