Take action to protect ecosystems!

The Initiation course, a first step in an NGO in the environmental sector

The Initiation programs, for a gap year for example, are divided into different categories, depending on the sustainable development objective supported. These are professional experiences in NGOs as part of a gap year , sabbaticals or your leave, allowing you to acquire transferable skills internationally by getting involved.

We find here the projects for the conservation of the environment .

The benefits of NGO projects

Participating in an environmental or animal project during a gap year offers an immersive and formative experience. Habitat conservation activities include:

  • ecosystem data collection
  • familiarity with tracking techniques
  • integration into a team of experts
  • application of conservation strategies
  • raising awareness of local communities
  • nature reserve immersion project

Working in a multicultural context broadens horizons and enhances profiles with significant international experience. It also demonstrates a real commitment to global causes.

Environmental projects abroad are numerous, so many opportunities to explore ecosystems unique in the world where many species and plants are found, in destinations rich in biodiversity such as: Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Indonesia, Peru, etc.
