Position
2; Interns will be working on developing the Wild Trade Website, and working on the VCA Registry.
The location enables interns to engage in public events taking place at IUCN and to interact with IUCN staff and the staff of other organisations in the building. We, however, also expect our interns to visit the other international agencies in Geneva whether through attending events, contacting specific experts on various issues or even just visiting other interns at their places of work. In turn, the interns are then asked to produce a ‘back to office’ report on their ventures into the international agencies.
