Sustainability Advocates is a dynamic and educational volunteering program operating within Station, the Student Innovation House located near CBS in Copenhagen. We are actively seeking passionate and driven students and recent graduates from diverse educational backgrounds who are eager to create a positive impact in the field of sustainability.
As a volunteer within Sustainability Advocates, you will have the unique chance to take ownership of your own sustainability-related project idea. We believe in empowering our volunteers to lead their initiatives, offering support and resources to bring these projects to life.
You will also have the opportunity to collaborate with local companies and institutions within the Copenhagen area, fostering valuable connections and maximizing your impact.
At the core of our program is the Leadership Team, a dedicated group of volunteers that collectively defines the program's framework, commits to a series of projects, and sets ambitious goals. Once the kick-off phase is complete, the Leadership Team actively recruits volunteers like you to join them in working on these projects. The volunteer commitment spans a period of five months, from September to January.
As Head of Finance & Partnerships, you will be responsible for overseeing the economic outlook and financial planning of the program. Your primary task will be to ensure proper resource allocation to ensure sufficient funds for the successful development of projects. You will also play an important role in cultivating valuable partnerships within the Copenhagen region, contributing to the program’s growth and success.
