Intern (Berlin office)
European Alternatives is a transnational non-profit, civil society organisation based in London, Paris, Rome and Berlin. We work to promote democracy, equality and culture beyond the nation state and imagine, demand and enact alternatives for a viable future for Europe.
European Alternatives organises a wealth of activities that range from building new media formats to digital journalism platforms, from activist and research publications to cross-border campaigns, from local events to transnational political and cultural festivals, from citizen roundtables to year-long training series. Our projects are carried out across Europe often in partnership with other organisations and our members, we work in Europe and the rest of the world.
