Current Internship Opportunities
Rethink the System, Work for Change
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 | Sustainability Commons – Create a periodic newsletter and help new users of the Sustainability Commons, the new platform for connecting, discussing, and collaborating to advance sustainability!
Communications for Sustainability, Peace, and Justice – Environmental writing courses help people deal with the need to address sometimes-complicated historical, scientific, & analytical information. This will go one step further and address the need to explore the moral & ethical issues in ways that reach the general public. [Writing-intensive]
Public Health – Clean Air – For many years, the Lehigh Valley has had excessive Diesel and other fine particle pollution. Research into the extent of the problem was included in the annual State of the Lehigh Valley report, but most planners and the general public are largely unaware of the problem and what needs to be done. The internship involves research, analysis, and activism to raise public & professional awareness, including a report and/or poster. [Writing-intensive]
