The Low Carbon Devon Future-Shift Internship Programme is providing invaluable support for enterprises to deliver low carbon projects and reduce their carbon emissions combined with practical work experience and leadership development for students and graduates.
The programme includes workshops which focus on developing systems thinking and the skills to facilitate compassionate and proactive change to tackle the climate emergency. The University of Plymouth Compass leadership tool supports students to become sustainable and global citizens through opportunities, such as Future-Shift, to contribute to a more sustainable future, both locally and globally.
What are the advantages for businesses to host interns?
“I can really see the benefit to both the interns and the local organisations, particularly enabling the enterprises to put into practice projects and ideas they wouldn’t be able to otherwise without these valuable resource and fresh perspective from the students and graduates” Chris Woodfield, Knowledge Exchange Officer, Low Carbon Devon
