PAST INTERNS TESTIMONIALS

Emily Egan
Emily Egan

I did my internship in the first half of 2016. I am a third year student at NHTV University in Breda, Netherlands studying International Tourism Management and Consultancy. 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 have learned a lot from this experience during the past 5 months!

Dikte Gronvold

As Event Management Intern I got the opportunity to dig into various parts of Green Destinations; from administrating, managing and developing the GGDD conference to audit and assisting on Green Destinations’ standards and criteria. Not only it taught me knew things but also made me of aware of the skills and knowledge I already had. Green Destinations trust and believe in your contributions, which makes it a unique place for an internship.

Tatiana Steichen

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 and I had the opportunity to help with the preparation of Global Green Destinations Event 2017 in Cascais. 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!

Alison Mirande

I had the chance to do an internship at Green Destinations from February to July 2019. The team is really welcoming, kind, nice and always there for you if you need anything. In addition, it is a unique opportunity to learn from these experts in sustainable tourism. I did a lot of different tasks that allowed me to improve my knowledge of tourism and also to develop new skills.

Anna Boneta

During my internship, I was involved in many projects, from the organisation of the 2019 Top100 Awards Event at ITB in Berlin (which was an amazing experience!), to the start-up of the Green Travel Guide, a great project that is slowly growing. I learned so much about sustainable tourism but also about web design, communication and project management, an internship in GD is a very complete training for your professional career.
