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.
