General Information

Our volunteers do not work on mundane tasks, but our size allows that everyone can take on responsibilities that suit their background. As we work mainly remotely, we look for people who can work independently and flexibly. We are a small NGO not able to offer paid positions at this point. Our interns and volunteers have so far managed to combined their position with us very well with their studies or (student) jobs. 

Our extensive network with researchers, government officials and NGOs means you can connect to people and areas of work outside of what you will (mostly) be working on. For example, we have team members who work on two entirely unrelated projects. We cherish diversity and expect the same from all future team members. 

Every application shows us that people want to make the world a better place. We appreciate that and leave no application unanswered…feel encouraged to apply!
