Info om praktikarbetsplatsen:

Are you a young professional, specialized in one of these three areas, and burning to work with development and to do something meaningful? Are you also looking for practical experience and would like to help develop a new organization on a volunteer basis, then, this might be something for you.

Rio Monte is seeking three volunteers with background in:

–       Marketing/ Communication/ Social Media,

–       Business/ Corporate Social Responsibility and

–       Environment.

Rio Monte supports corporations, and stimulates and enables citizens to play a strategic role in combating poverty. We do that by providing easy access to orientation and information and opportunities to take action.

Business is playing an increasing role in society having a direct effect on wealth creation and distribution as well as the environment.  This increases the need for business to be ethical and to integrate social responsibility as part of their business.

Citizens as customers, employees and investors can play a critical role recognizing and requesting good business. Social media and global communication open fantastic possibilities for citizens to play an active role in development.

Rio Monte is developing a FORUM to build partnerships for joint initiatives/action.

The FORUM*) is a space to:

–       exchange experience of individuals and business in combating poverty and promoting responsible business (South-North, North-North and South- South),

–       build groups and interact with networks of world experts in social development.

Examples of topics for the FORUM:
– Sustainable Business  Group: CSR and the supply chain, the Bangladesh experience. Corporate Volunteering. Social entrepreneurs. The rain forest and palm oil.

– Development Group : MDGs until and post 2015, role of corporations and individuals.

With corporations we also support partnerships for policy development, prepare social analysis and hold workshops and seminars on challenges and opportunities related to social development in their areas of operation.
