Internships

What’s your passion? Ours is to serve. We want to improve wellbeing and the environment worldwide. Quoting Prof. Thomas Metzinger

“… global warming.. exceeds the present cognitive and emotional abilities of our species. This is the first truly global crisis, experienced by all human beings at the same time and in a single media space…”

But this is only one of the problems we are experiencing together as a species. We believe we will succeed and come out of these challenges happier. We will have our heroes because millions of people from every part of the society will act. We are at the beginning of such change, and those heroes are looking for solutions. So, we are connecting them with the best minds in the world to catalyze change.

Our Inspiration

Improper waste management continues to impact the health of entire communities and cities; pollute local water, air and land resources; contribute to climate change and ocean plastic pollution; hinder climate change adaptation; and accelerate depletion of forests and mines. These problems cannot be solved without solving waste. Solving waste leads to tangible results in increased economic opportunities, improved public health and quality of life, clean air and drinking water, renewable energy and climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Waste is a global challenge with local solutions and billions of people need solutions to and through waste, and yet they lack access to relevant knowledge and best practice. be Waste Wise is one of the very few organizations addressing these issues at scale.
