Intern Projects

Interns use research & analysis to rethink the way we do things and build a more sustainable future as they gain hands-on experience developing solutions and raising awareness.

  • Climate & sustainability in schools (summer) – a team of students will identify and develop tools to help teachers integrate climate & sustainability topics across the entire curriculum. Individual internships may also be available in the fall.
  • Combined Heat & Power [CHP] (fall) – a team of students will develop a proposal for an energy-efficient combined heat & power [CHP] system for a local hospital, considering technical, financial, climate, and other factors.
  • We are currently developing new internships on Private Profits & Socialized CostsUrban Ecology.
  • Healthy Food for Healthy Communities – An ongoing effort to raise awareness of the health & climate impacts of the food system. Previous internship have produced important results, including a report on institutional food services and a compilation of resources used by colleges & universities seeking to transition to sustainable campus food.
