Detailed description

Durability. People all over the world are eager to get started. It starts at people's homes, but there is also everything possible in their environment. If only they knew how ... Maybe you have it in you to get this green train moving.

IVN Natuureducatie is launching the 'A Sustainable Year' calendar in August. Full of information and tips on sustainability, beautiful nature photos and a number of challenges. It is nice if people start working with this calendar, but alone is only that way. That is why you as a trainee will help set up a vibrant community around this calendar. This is how you create the vibe "we do this together!".


  • As a trainee you will set up an online community for at least 500 people. The kickstart for it is Sustainability Day on 10 October 2019. You set up a promotional campaign and you implement it.
  • You help organize a national IVN event about the link between nature and sustainability. The event is for calendar users and IVN members who are working on sustainability. The event takes place at the end of January and the trainees run the day.


Start day is 7 September 2019, end day 1 February 2020. You work weekly on Wednesday morning, from 11 September (except 2 October), 4 hours a day. Each week you spend approximately 2 hours on training, development or site visits. The sustainability event will take place on 25 January.
