What our previous interns say…

Steffi: “ … The experience to intern with the EUROPARC Federation Policy office was a great learning experience professionally and personally speaking, that I can recommend to any student interested in European policy related to the field of conservation, advocacy work and intercultural cooperation.  … For me it was particularly interesting to work across the broad policy areas EUROPARC operates in … Regular report writing and supporting social media activities trained my ability to filter, qualify and interpret information for particular audiences, in this case Protected Areas practitioners and authorities…”

Gaia: “…This internship experience has allowed me to deepen my knowledge of the policy-decision making process behind institutions and make me able to participate to the work they do directly, understanding better their roles and functions… I improved my communication skills working on public relations with other partners and representing several time the Federation. Was a continue growth from the professional to the personal level… This experience helped me to understand that is the field where I want to work in the future.”

Alberto: “… The internship carried out at EUROPARC Federation has resulted in a continuous growth both on a professional and personal level. It is a unique opportunity to learn about how the field of conservation and environmental protection is being developed in Europe, with a multidisciplinary work that allows to expand knowledge in a practical and effective way in important issues such as biodiversity, agriculture, tourism or climate change. The daily work with a formidable team of people, together with the possibility of collaborating with the European Institutions has been a unique and unforgettable experience for me, as well as a useful learning experience for my development as a future professional in the field of the environment. In addition to working in the field of politics through meetings, reports, recommendations, events… I have been able to develop organizational and communication skills, as well as the management of newsletters, website, social networks… This is a complete experience totally recommended to those students who wish to explore the functioning of the European political mechanism, but always with a local approach thanks to the close contact with the members of the Federation.”
