We are pleased to announce the second round of Orange and Green which is a transnational programme for individuals wishing to develop their knowledge and understanding of sustainable design and the built environment from a wider European viewpoint.
Participants will undertake a 13 - week placement in a professional organisation in the Andalucian Region of Spain. There are 18 places available from January to March 2012. Applications are now open! Flights, accommodation and an allowance for food and travel will be provided.
The specific aims of the programme are:

Participants will achieve the following outputs:
• Development of their practical and technical skills in relation to energy efficiency
• Development of their professional, personal, intercultural and linguistic skills
• Increase their confidence and self esteem
• Assist their entry into the labour market, if not currently employed
