About the programme

Let’s make it green!

We are looking for a coordinator to manage our environmental education and waste awareness programme. It is observed that Maldives does not have an environmental friendly atmosphere. There is a lack of a waste management system throughout the country.

If you are able to contribute towards a more green environment, feel welcome to join our team. We will ensure that your stay with us throughout the project is significant and consequential.

The welfare of the environment in the Maldives is a supremely important issue, although it is often one that little is done about. Community awareness is generally low, with local people having no real knowledge of the dangers they face. Some of the biggest issues are climate change and waste management.

While working as an environmentalist in the Maldives, your main duties will be mainly raising awareness amongst local community. This can include providing presentations, arranging campaigns and events to spread knowledge about a more green and waste free environment. Designing materials such as leaflets and posters are also included in the tasks. Other activities may involve the liaising with councils on environmental matters and offering advice and guidance on the environmental effects of new developments and projects. You may also be engaged in writing proposals for future projects. Different groups will be involved in this campaign such as schools, households and other community members. We will support you during the programme and give you assistance whenever needed. We will make sure that this experience becomes rewarding for you.


• Background in environmental studies is preferred

• Passion for environmental conservation

• Good inter-personal skills

• Ability to implement and organize the waste awareness programme in the community through workshops, campaigns and presentations

• Knowledge to keep the environment safe, clean and sustainable
