Climate Action

The increasingly rapid progress of global warming & climate change have created an urgent need for dramatic action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions [GHG] and adapt to the rapidly-changing climate.

Interns will work on a combination of the following tasks and will gain a strong understanding of ways to reduce GHG, develop plans for adaptation, and strengthen their project development and project management skills:

  • Research climate action plans by communities and institutions, including colleges & universities.
  • Identify a specific community or institution here in the Lehigh Valley that could develop or improve a climate action plan
  • Explore ways to increase community awareness of the urgent need for climate action
  • Develop a presentation for community & campus audiences to share your insights and raise awareness of the need for action
  • Write articles and/or blog posts on various aspects of campus sustainability
