GLOBE International is offering four internships in 2022 to support our work on global legislative leadership for sustainable development and climate action.
The interns will work under the supervision of programme leads to help deliver GLOBE events at London Climate Action Week 2022 (including the Schools Climate Summit), the Student-MP Climate Surgeries in Africa, and legislative Summits at the United Nations’ three Rio Conventions - UNCCD COP15 on desertification; UNCBD COP15 on biodiversity and UNFCCC COP27 on climate change.
The internships would suit recent school or university graduates with an interest in sustainability, climate change, political science, governance and international relations. Both part-time and full-time intern positions can be considered and a stipend will be offered.
