Fondation Botnar's Young Professionals Program

A two-year programme, with one year spent with Fondation Botnar in Basel, Switzerland, and up to one year with a partner or related organisation in a low- to middle-income country.

Do you feel like change is not happening fast enough? Do you often find yourself brainstorming on how to improve the way social businesses, philanthropic organisations, NGOs, governments and international organisations function? Are you eager to discover how artificial intelligence (AI), social entrepreneurship or innovative financing mechanisms can be used to advance global progress on the SDGs? Each year, Fondation Botnar recruits two young professionals under 35 years old.

Fondation Botnar
