Applications are now open once again for both remote and in-person internships!

Why consider an internship at Our Future Cities?

Successful candidates will be able to:

  • gain experience in urbanism and cross-cultural knowledge focussed on the Global South

What are remote internships?

Our Future Cities offers remote internships for energetic, curious and hardworking young people looking to gain experience in urbanism without physically going abroad.  Interns also benefit from affordability and convenience of working from the city or town you live in or where you are based.

The ideal candidate has a passion and curiosity for topics related to future cities, including affordable housing, public spaces, transport and mobility, urban design, architecture, economics or a related built environment field.

After the successful completion of the internship, the interns benefit from Our Future Cities’ platforms and networks to support their future ambitions in the field.
