Past Interns Testimonials
My name is Tatiana, I am French and I did an internship within Green Destinations from June to August 2017 when I was a third-year student in Sustainable Tourism Management. My tasks were very diverse; I had the opportunity to help with the preparation of Global Green Destinations Event 2017 in Cascais, and I have assisted in updating the database, developing social media and designing web documents. This three months internship was a great and positive experience, I’ve learned a lot and I can’t wait to meet and collaborate again with Green Destinations members in the future!
I am Esmee, 24 years old, living in The Hague and I was one of the four interns at the EUCC for QualityCoast and Green Destinations from February-July 2016. I am a fourth year European Studies student at the Hague University for Applied Science. During my internship I have actively worked on communications and PR together with Emily. In March I have assisted at the ITB in Berlin, the world’s largest international tourism event. Together with Zainab, I worked on the preparation and organisation of the Qualitycoast-Green Destinations presentation. I have also assisted in developing Social Media campaigns for the Sustainable Destination Top 100 and the Green Deal Sustainable Tourism. I was very excited to work at the EUCC, since I have always been interested in how to live and work as sustainably as possible. Every Monday and Wednesday evening I play football, and Saturdays are match days. I love to hang out with my friends with a good glass of wine.
My name is Emily Egan and I did my internship working for Green Destinations in the first half of 2016. I am a third year student at NHTV University in Breda, Netherlands studying International Tourism Management and Consultancy (ITMC). During the time of my internship I have been actively involved in the pilot and auditor training program, and hands on with the new online platform for Green Destinations. I am extremely interested in all aspects of sustainable developments in tourist destinations, and have learned a lot from this experience during the past 5 months!
