Unforgettable experience

Roots Interns organized a five months voluntary job at Greenpop in PR/Communications in Cape Town for me. The experience was life changing.

Greenpop is an organization that plants trees and is active for our planet. At the same time it is all about having fun and a positive attitude. As a volunteer you can really make a difference. I supported the Communications team and handled the PR for different festivals that Greenpop organizes every year. For example, at the Reforest Fest hundreds of people plant trees during the day and at night you are all dancing under the stars.

We also started a donor program and there are tree planting days every week. These tree planting days are amazing: you go to public schools in townships and together with the kids you will plant trees at their school in a super fun way.

Not only do you make a difference for the planet, it is life changing for yourself as well. I became much more conscious about the environment and how to live more sustainable.

And last but definitely not least, the people I met at Greenpop, the schools, the festivals and everywhere in Cape Town are super inspiring and amazing!
