Cohort members go through a rigorous selection process with training on car dependency and campaigning techniques across six months.
By the time of the placement in April the cohort will be working on their own campaigns in pairs. It is hoped to match pairs to relevant environmental organisations based on the campaign topics.
Representatives of each employer are invited to meet the cohort ahead of placement in April at a one off contact event.
We’ll provide support to both employers and the cohort ahead of, during and after the placement to ensure everyone gets the most from it.
The placement lasts six days during the first half of April 2022.
Because unpaid internships have been a barrier to taking up work in this sector in the past, the cohort will be paid London Living Wage for their six day placement. We can help with topping up wages if that is an issue for smaller organisations.
Employers are invited to attend an event at the end of the year to celebrate the work of the cohort.
If you think your organisation might benefit from hosting the next generation of environmental activists for a week in April 2022 as part of this structured programme, please get in touch for further information.
