The Fellowship sets out to explore best practices from around the world on how to localize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Israel.
The IPPI offers young professionals from the field of environmental policy from Germany the opportunity to take part in its paid Fellowship Program “Localizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – German-Israeli Perspectives”.
The Fellowship Program will provide young professionals in the field of sustainability the opportunity to exchange with some of Israel’s leading thought leaders in the field and gain firsthand professional experience while learning about the country’s efforts to localize the SDGs in Israel.
In the framework of the program, the fellows will be required to write a policy paper that will focus on a common environmental challenge in Israel and in Germany. During the program the fellows will be able to reach out to the partners of the IPPI and the HBS in order to familiarize themselves with the relevant actors in the Israeli ecosystem.
The fellowship will take place in Israel for a duration of 4 to 5 months between January and June, 2019. Selected applicants will receive 750 Euros per month for their participation in the fellowship.
To apply, send your CV and a cover letter explaining your interest and why are a good fit for the program to firstname.lastname@example.org
