Who are we?
ReGeneration 2030 is a youth movement for sustainability in the Nordic and Baltic Sea Regions. We are run by a youth board from around the region, and a small secretariat based in Åland. Our main event is our annual ReGeneration Week, a 4-day gathering on Åland where young people and sustainability actors from across the Nordic and Baltic Sea region imagine, discuss, and build a sustainable future (www.regenerationweek.org)
You will have the chance to develop a project that aligns with your interests and studies during the summer. During the summer, we envisage projects with a focus on;
Internal and external communication (including social media, email, and websites)
Organisational development (anti-discrimination practices, worker support, teambuilding)
Movement building (within and beyond ReGeneration 2030)
Sustainability workshop design and delivery
Volunteer training and coordination
Who are You?
We are looking for three organised and enthusiastic Higher Education Interns to join us in Åland over the summer to develop your skills and understanding of sustainability politics, social movements and event organisations. You will also have the chance to learn about the employment market in Åland and come into contact with our network of organisations there. You will be working in a small, dynamic team with opportunities for professional development, networking, and growth.
We are particularly seeking students studying the theoretical side of what we do at ReGeneration 2030, such as sustainability, social science and politics, or the practical side of what we do, such as communications, business administration, or event planning.
The internship is offered through the Åland Provincial Government via AMS. The requirements are that;
You are in higher education and more than 50% of the way through your studies
Your internship project
You have (or are willing to obtain) a Finnish tax card
The internship will be between 26th June - 25th August 2023 (8 weeks)
