Environmental Advocacy Volunteering and Internship

Art in Tanzania’s Environmental Advocacy volunteer internship program encourages students to engage in sustainable community work, raise awareness of the environment and climate change, and be innovative in developing practical solutions to combat environmental concerns. Bring skills and knowledge you have built during your time at university and apply them to real-world situations; develop and apply skills such as problem-solving, teamwork, organisation, and creativity. You can focus on different areas of environmental advocacy and tasks you are most passionate about. For example, your duties may include waste management and recycling, corporate social responsibility, education in schools and community members, planting trees and garden creation with orphanages, and food security. You will be allocated tasks and responsibilities by team leaders and focus on individual or group projects. Contact us for more information or file a program application form.

Environmental Advocacy

Visit community schools to raise environmental awareness and prepare presentations and classes. Currently, climate change and ecological risks are not well understood in Tanzania. We are working to counter this. Participants also introduce new community-level technologies, such as constructing homemade solar cookers.

Please have a look at the Climate Change Report performed by our previous participant.

Waste Management

Waste management is poorly implemented in Tanzania. Work to help improve recycling, work with corporations initiating sustainable waste management approaches, and develop solutions you can introduce yourself.

During your term, you join practical programs such as using second-hand plastic bottles to produce fences in schools.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Engage with the corporate partners of Art in Tanzania and involve new companies in environmentally responsible campaigns, advocating responsible actions with the local and international companies as part of the CSR program.
