Interns, project groups, researchers: pupils, students and researchers are very welcome at Mondiaal Maastricht for an internship, conducting research or carrying out a project.

Partners: Mondiaal likes to collaborate! We are looking to build sustainable partnerships with local change makers: passionate organizations and people who, just like us, are committed to creating a better world.
