Current Internship Opportunities
Rethink the System, Work for Change
New & updated internships for 2014!
Campus Sustainability 2.0 – The new campus sustainability internship will use AASHE’s Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System [STARS] v 2.0 to evaluate progress on campus & identify areas that need more attention; interns will also submit suggestions for future versions of STARS. (Also available with a focus on Sustainable Campus Dining.)
Communications & Media – There are several options for those interested in writing & communication:
Climate Action — Global warming and the resulting climate crises continue to increase, but our so-called leaders display all the symptoms of addicts. Interns will help prepare specific recommendations and tools for local governments, school systems, and/or businesses and may also work with interested student groups in local schools.
Like most Alliance internships, these are writing-intensive.
There are other possibilities, so please contact us if you are interested in an internship other than those listed above. Of particular interest to the Alliance are projects looking at public health implications of Food from the industrialized food system and Air pollution, especially Diesel and other fine-particle pollution.
Following is a list of some internship possibilities based on successful recent internships – for more information, send an email to internship coordinator Peter Crownfield. with links for more detailed descriptions. Note that preference may be given at times to special projects and urgent calls for action.
