South Africa provides a unique landscape for those interested in pursuing a career in sustainable development. During your internship, join one of a number of organizations, companies, and government agencies in Cape Town that promote social, economic, cultural and environmental sustainability. Sustainable internships can offer a rare blend of being involved with grassroots community projects or a part of economic progress with a beautiful environment in need of protection. Whichever your focus, you will be a part of positive sustainable efforts for community and environmental well-being.
A few example internships include NPOs such as the Cape Town Environmental Education Trust, African Monitor & Khulisa Social Solutions to more grassroots level organizations such as organic urban farming initiatives. And lastly, we also work with private sector companies involved in education and renewable energy initiatives as well.
