The internship program of EWB-DK is established with different objectives, but our main focus is to globally support and develop technical knowledge and capacity.
By sending students and young professionals into the field, we seek to develop our local partner's knowledge and know-how as well as expand Danish technical students and young professionals knowledge by working in a global context, and thereby from a practical approach support an increased international focus on Danish technical capacity.
We continuously advertise internship positions to assist our projects.
"During my internship, I was based in Kenema in Sierra Leone. I worked with some great teams - both in Denmark and in Sierra Leone, and it went very well. Based on the first three months, I was eager to learn more, and I ended up extending my stay to five months which I was very pleased with. "

Locations for the internship period can be both at the head office in Copenhagen and at EWB-DK's partners operating projects around the world. Sometimes a location also consist of a combination of work carried out in Denmark and abroad.
”During our internship, we got the task jointly with the local partner to design a data collection method to conduct participatory climate risk assessments in ten rural communities. The internship included six weeks of a field study where we tested and finalized the method before collecting data in the involved communities.”
