Are you passionate about inspiring the next generation to create sustainable solutions to the problems our planet is facing? We are at PPL PWR. We are a collective who aim to encourage new ideas and technologies to power sustainable change through workshops in festivals and schools. We are looking for volunteers to help build, create and design workshops (Project Coordinators), assist in the making stage of the workshops (Project Assistants), and advertise our work (Video Graphers/Editors and Content Writers). They will benefit from a strong network in the engineering and start-up industries, participating to renowned festivals such as Brainchild and Greenman, and receive a reference letter.
