Ninth Wave Global are looking for participants to assist with a range of environmental and community projects and initiatives in and around the city of Campeche, south-east Mexico.
Placements will be individually tailored according to interests and existing experience in order to enable wide-ranging skill development and community engagement.
Participants will be involved with local projects, including:
Mercado Verde - a weekly 'green market' brought about by a community of local artisans and organic producers, aiming to promote fair-trade goods and reduce food miles.
Empresa Verde - a co-operative assessment and support framework for local businesses moving towards sustainable, environmentally conscious practices
El Campanario - a vanguard socio-environmental project encompassing a food forest, compost and recycling resource, animal shelter and educational workshop
Developing sustainable infrastructure for progressive tourism in remote communities across the state.
Along with several local key partner organisations, this year our projects will generate a truly integral and coherent vision of heritage which not only deals with historical landmarks but encompasses a progressive vision for the future of our city and community, with the essential values needed to grow an alliance between who we have been and who we hope to become
