JOIN THE V4SDG TEAM TODAY!

RECRUITMENT EXTENDED UNTIL 15 JULY, 23:59 CET

Visegrad for Sustainability (V4SDG) was created to pave the way towards the achievement of the SDGs in the Visegrad Group. Our founders realised that the region’s sustainability actors are not closely connected to each other and only weakly integrated into the global mainstream of sustainability affairs. To fix that, they set up an organisation to strengthen sustainability collaboration and build pipelines towards the international stage.

Established in 2018, we have grown into a non-profit of over 30 young professionals turning sustainability into the greatest innovation and development opportunity of our region. While we are only covering four countries now, we are planning to expand to the rest of Central Eastern Europe as well. For further information, please refer to our booklet here.

WE ARE NOW RECRUITING FOR 1 ROLE, SEEKING PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE.

IF YOU ARE READY TO GIVE YOUR ALL TO THIS INITIATIVE, WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU!
