Detailed description

Walk with the climate march, do as many packs as possible without packaging or on holiday by bike instead of the plane. Sustainability is a verb! But the mountain of information about what is or isn't good for the world is sometimes quite large. If only there was a way to properly inform people and show them what they can do themselves….

Well you can. Or well. Not yet, but almost. In 2019, a group of Trainees developed a course on climate change. Packed with good information, step-by-step help in being sustainable and attention for the mental aspect. Pretty awesome, if we say so ourselves. But now part 2: giving the course at locations throughout the Netherlands. That will happen in 2020 and you can help with that.

In short: your commitment

You are a mainstay for the trainers who are going to give the climate course and the departments of IVN Nature Education who want to offer this course. And that goes like this:

  • February: you get to know the climate course and make other people as enthusiastic as you are. Good luck? Then you look together with the IVN departments that want to give the course what they need and make a customized plan.
  • March: you design a train-the-trainers day (March 28 in Utrecht) where 20 IVN trainers are trained. And you evaluate the pilot course so that we can learn from it again.
  • April: you visit IVN departments throughout the country and are their mainstay in setting up the course. Including 2 local climate excursions.
  • June: you are at the implementation of the climate course. You can also enjoy the results of all that preparation. Very nice.

In short: your impact

You help IVN departments set up and organize a new climate course. In this way you help raise awareness about climate change and you help participants to take action.


Fixed working day Wednesday 10 am to 4 pm in Nijmegen from 1 February 2020 to the end of June

About Groen Traineeship

Are you between 16 and 30? Do you have about 1 day a week? And do you want to actively contribute to nature and sustainability in the Netherlands?

Then we have something that suits you. With the Green Traineeship you choose which project or projects you want to do. Hope to see you soon :)
