Support Internships

Through the Knowledge Network Talent Development Platform, UNWTO Member States, UNWTO Affiliate Members, and UNWTO Regional and Operational Programmes are invited to join forces with the Knowledge Network to promote young talents in tourism through internships opportunities. The template attached details suggested criteria for calls for international internship to be announced and facilitated through the Knowledge Network Talent Development Platform.

Internships shall foster international mobility of knowledge and talent in tourism. Internships should provide a meaningful experience for interns based on hands-on experience that equally benefits the intern and the sponsor organization.
