My name is Anna, I am from Andorra and I studied Biology and specialized in Environmental Sustainability with a master after it. My internship in Green Destinations was part of an Erasmus+ with which I acquired valuable tools for the future as I’d like to dedicate my professional career to nature conservation through sustainable tourism. 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.
Hey! I am Alison, I'm French, I am 20 years old and I had the chance to do an internship at Green Destinations from February to July 2019. If you are interested in sustainable tourism, I can only recommend you to spend a few months in Leiden, it's added value to your CV. 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 would be too long to explain all, but it allowed me to improve my knowledge of tourism and also to develop new skills. Every day there is something new to do, you will never be bored! Join the GD team, you will not regret it.
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!
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!
