Climate change looms as the most pressing issue of our generation. Fracking has contaminated drinking water and made people sick across the country. Our rivers, lakes, and most treasured natural areas are vulnerable to mining, drilling and other harms.
There’s no lack of solutions to solve these challenges; there’s a lack of political will. That’s why Environment America is running grassroots campaigns to bring people together to convince our leaders to stop pandering to big polluters and climate deniers, and start getting behind the solutions. We are hiring interns for the 2015 semester to work.
To win positive change for the environment, you need a smart strategy and effective tactics. But most of all, you need grit and determination – because that’s what it takes to mobilize enough public support to win.
As an Environment America intern, you’ll be working with some of our with some of our most experienced advocates and organizers on campaigns to reduce global warming pollution, create more solar and wind power, spare our parks and forests from fracking, keep our beaches, rivers and streams clean, and protect our wildlife and wild places.
You’ll help craft and implement social media campaigns, generate traditional earned media through opinion writing, recruit community leaders to join our campaigns, collect petitions and other grassroots support, and research and write fact sheets and other materials for decision makers and opinion leaders.
And if you’re graduating this year, you should apply to Environment America’s fellowship program, a two-year crash course in environmental organizing and advocacy. Find out more and apply at http://jobs.environmentamerica.org/
