Detailed description

You see it more and more in the news: insects are not doing well in the Netherlands. And no matter how nice it is that you put a secondary plant on your balcony, sometimes you just want to do more. The Vlinderstichting gives a group of Trainees the opportunity to really go for it. The Vlinderstichting knows in which areas what must be done to give many different butterflies and animals a chance. Well it is a lot of work if you do that with a few people, but luckily help comes ...

As a trainee you organize at least one event in which you, together with Geocachers, make a piece of nature completely biodiversity proof. You will collaborate with the people who manage an area, make a plan and of course roll up your sleeves yourself. A project for real approachers. Do you recognize yourself in that? Then sign up quickly.

Super gift bonus: you come to places in nature where you are normally not allowed or not allowed.

About Groen Traineeship
Are you between 16 and 30? Do you have about 1 day a week? And do you want to actively commit to nature and sustainability in the Netherlands? For example, putting nature work on the map for young people, save the eels, plant Tiny Forests together with residents and children or set up a festival tour for the kickstart "The Year of the Changer". Then we have something that suits you. With the Green Traineeship you choose which project or projects you want to do. Hopefully see you soon :)
