A warm welcome to our new interns!

A big welcome to our next round of interns! After a week of rigorous training, our 9 new interns (we’ve got room for one more in Dar es Salaam – see below!) are currently settling in to their respective cities.  

San Fernando : Clara Blakelock and Stu Campana (Waste Management)

Dar es Salaam : Olive Bailey (Urban Agriculture)

Colima : Ryan Guest and Colin Nekolaichuk (Communications + Community Development) and Jonathan Denis-Jacob (Community + Urban Planning)

Durban : Barbara Dourley (Green Economy)

Dakar : Francois Seguin (GIS) and Michael Von Buttlar (Local Initiatives)

Through the CIDA IYIP program, we will be posting interns in our international member cities over a 3-year period. Each posting is 6 months long. We’re currently in our first year, and have received amazing feedback from our interns and our host cities.

Sustainable Cities International has an immediate internship posting in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania – Tourism. The intern will assist the city of with their long-term planning, with a specific focus on sustainable economic development through tourism.

    Every time we have the fortune to welcome more challenging people on board. They have been raising a very high profile of professionals in IPCo, that is getting harder to my own mexican coworkers that get challenge by their fellow canadians.
    Old interns leave big shoes to fill, and new interns want to leave their own mark, and so far so good, and this it’s only the beginning, so I couldn’t be happier!
    That is great for me but mostly for the city, that is able to see results in short time. It’s a win win situation.
