New Traineeship Opportunity with Skat Foundation

The SDG Youth Programme was designed by the Mercator Foundation Switzerland in collaboration with cinfo. It aims to offer students and aspiring professionals the opportunity to gain initial exposure and work experience with an NGO or social enterprise active in international cooperation (IC).

Selected candidates are given the opportunity to work on new topics and innovative projects for one year, both in Switzerland and in an office abroad (or with a partner organisation of the host organisation). During this time, the young professionals can explore their motivation to follow a career path that allows them to contribute to the SDGs. At the same time, they can transfer the knowledge and skills they have acquired to the Swiss labour market. The career development of the successful candidates is at the heart of the programme.

This year,  Skat Foundation has been selected to offer a one-year Trainee position: Change Action Promotion in solid waste management in Colombia.

The trainee will have the opportunity to contribute to the development of actions to promote sustainable waste management practices in poor urban communities in Bogotá, in the context of the Skat Foundation’s Green Terrace project and to design and implement a community strategy for the efficient collection of organic waste in project -related neighborhoods.
