Interns use research & analysis to rethink the way we do things and raise awareness towards a more sustainable future as they gain hands-on experience developing solutions. Summer interns will focus on two main projects:
- Food sustainability for teachers – Food from the industrialized food system often harms our health, the environment, and the climate. We will develop ideas for teachers and a system for assessing food sustainability at school. (Fall internships available.)
- Law Enforcement and the Justice System – Why do we have so many questions about police officers killing unarmed civilians? Why does the prison system fail to help people return as productive members of society? Why do we ignore the many benefits of restorative approaches?
In January 2017, we published materials on Interdisciplinary Teaching on Climate & Sustainability. (see teach-climate.net). We are developing a new internship in Urban Ecology – Looking at cities from a holistic viewpoint that considers people & other living things, the built environment, and human institutions.
