Since 2004, Alliance interns have been using research & analysis to rethink the way we do things and undo the ‘business as usual’ thinking that has caused so many of the current crises. In the process, they raise awareness and help create a more sustainable future even as they gain hands-on experience developing solutions.
NOTE: Due to the coronavirus situation, some internships are now being done ‘remotely’.
Over the summer, intern teams worked on two major projects, one exploring the criminal justice system and the urgent need for community-based & restorative justice systems, and one developing the new version of the Sustainable Lehigh Valley booklet—with more creative work, both written and visual. And another intern continued work on developing a new Sustainability Commons platform.
This fall, a grad student at Lehigh is starting an internship looking at the local food system and other food-related topics. An intern from outside the area will continue work on the Sustainability Commons platform.
