ECF is looking for a motivated EuroVelo Intern to join its EuroVelo team in Brussels and support its Communications and donations activities.

ABOUT THE EUROPEAN CYCLISTS' FEDERATION (ECF):

We are the single European umbrella federation of member-based civil society organisations advocating and working for more and better cycling.

We promote cycling as a sustainable and healthy means of transport and leisure.

With more than 60 member organisations from over 40 countries, we harness the power of European cycling movements as the only voice at the pan-European level.

We are based in Brussels and our roots are in Europe, but the challenges we face are global, and we are ready to meet them as the world’s largest and best-known cyclists’ advocacy organisation.

One of ECF’s flagship initiatives is EuroVelo, the European cycle route network. This network of 17 long-distance cycle routes that cross and connect all of Europe is the largest network of its kind in the world. EuroVelo aims to provide safe, direct, coherent and connected cycling infrastructure and cycle route networks that benefits all categories of cyclists, including everyday cyclists, cycling tourists and leisure cyclists.

INTERNSHIP DESCRIPTION:

The EuroVelo Intern will work as part of the EuroVelo Management Team to help boost the EuroVelo network and its aim to encourage access to cycling for all by creating a network of high-standard long-distance cycle routes, benefiting all categories of cyclists and fostering sustainable tourism.
