Consultant, Forest Stewardship Council, Germany

The Forest Stewardship Council is seeking a consultant to explore the feasibility of carbon storage as a High Conservation Value.

In order to implement this motion, the PSU Ecosystem Services program is now seeking a consultant that will provide recommendations on the different options available to identify, monitor and assess High Carbon Density forests in accordance with FSC Principle 9.

UNH Sustainability Institute Climate Fellowship

DEADLINE: March 24, 2014

In 2008, Clean Air-Cool Planet created the Climate Fellows program to address a recurring program: even best-intentioned partners—whether in the community, campus or corporate sector—could easily be thwarted in their sustainability goals by a lack of “person-power” necessary to conduct inventories, research and write climate action plans, or carry out other high priority climate-related rojects. Lacking any better option, many opted to assign these tasks to a busy voluntee, or a staff person already working at full capacity—and, all too often, that meant a loss of momentum or even abandonment of a climate project.

In 2014, the Sustainability Institute at UNH became the new home of the Climate Fellows program. The program matches exceptional college students from diverse backgrounds with high priority climate solutions projects. Through this nationally advertised and highly competitive program, students receive skills training, mentoring, networking opportunities, and a stipend for full-time summer projects undertaken with a wide range of partner organizations.
