Eager to learn about the issues facing the hospitality industry? Interested in sustainability and innovations that combat the climate crisis? Here is your chance to make a difference!
G.R.E.E.N. Hospitality is launching a (virtual) internship and volunteering program. By working a minimum 120 hours for 6 to 12 weeks, you will be able to gain valuable experience in bringing about innovative and engaging events and activities to promote sustainability in hotels, airlines, restaurants and more.
The team is managed by experienced educators at the University of Hong Kong and professional mentors in the fields of sustainability, hospitality and business. Besides enhancement of soft & hard skills, and professional mentoring, a certificate of recognition will be provided upon successful completion of the program and outstanding participants will also receive a personalised recommendation letter.
We look forward to seeing you!
basic requirements & eligibility criteria
We hope you are:
Passionate about hospitality, sustainability and innovation;
Team player, analytical and with a critical mindset;
Able to strategise and solve abstract problems;
Creative and innovative (and fun!)
Anyone above 18 years of age is eligible to apply! You do not need to be a student or to be located in Hong Kong (or even in Asia) to take part in this program. But, you will need to have access to stable internet and a device such as a laptop or a tablet which will permit you to deliver the required work.
If you are a university student and would like to attend an official internship, please let us know the requirements of your institution. For the University of Hong Kong (HKU) students, you can get credits for taking this program via the Social Venture Management Course (BUSI2812).
For non-HKU students and other interested applicants, we are experienced in conducting fully remote and fun virtual volunteering programs that will allow you to develop professional and interpersonal skills as well as learn a great deal about sustainability in the hospitality industry.
If you are based in Hong Kong we conduct also face-to-face meetings and teambuilding activities that you would be able to participate in. For those of you in the virtual universe, we also prepare online events to connect and get to know you.
