Join us on the Climate Crisis and Clean Energy Virtual Internship to gain experience in projects that help to prevent the climate crisis. Gain a deeper understanding of how climate change is affecting local livelihoods, and assist with implementing clean energy solutions such as solar, wind and wave power. This will be done by working virtually with local social enterprises, NGOs and community-based organisations that make climate action and clean energy their goal.
