Looking for an Internship? Interested in the environment? What about climate change?
Intern with Environment Washington on their solar cities campaign!
Climate change is the single biggest crisis facing our generation. It has severe implications for our health, economy, national security and most other aspects of our lives, and we’re already seeing the fallout. Whether it be wildfires in the Western US that destroy property and make it impossible for people to go outside, or the increased severity and prevalence of superstorms on the East Coast, we’re feeling the impacts of climate change.
So what can we do about it? We know that climate change is tightly linked to carbon emissions from the burning of fossil fuels, and we know that we need to make serious investments in renewable energy to stave off its worst effects. Our new administration and Congress will likely hinder our ability to take large strides nationally in the next several years, so we’re redoubling our efforts right here in our backyard, by promoting solar energy in counties and municipalities across Washington. We’re going to be working to get city councils in Ellensburg and Snohomish to make ambitious solar commitments.
We’re currently hiring interns to help run our solar cities campaign. As an intern with Environment Washington you can build your resume while learning awesome skills like how to organize a press conference, write a letter to the editor, run a petition drive and/or plan an event.
