Virtual Internship: Social Media for Climate Activism
Gain valuable practical experience working with a team of students from across the nation in the development, execution and assessment of a social media campaign in support of a national climate education project, Solve Climate By 2030. This is a VIRTUAL INTERNSHIP. You can participate from anywhere in the US. You must be available for group strategy meetings, presentations and online discussion Monday evenings from 8:00-10:00 p.m. EST every week, and commit to an additional three hours of group and individual work each week. The internship begins on February 3, 2020 and runs through April 15, 2020 for a total of 10 weeks.
Solve Climate By 2030 is mobilizing U.S. educators to engage over 100,000 students in dialog about ambitious action to stabilize the climate. It culminates on the evening of April 7, 2020, with 52 simultaneous, university-hosted webinars, one in every state, and in D.C. and Puerto Rico. These dialogs will reveal three, ambitious things that need doing in Texas and Idaho, Missouri and New Jersey, Florida and Minnesota, if we really aim to stop climate change. Across the country, every student in an environmental studies class, every AP environmental science class, every faith group and civic organization can participate.
Intern teams will design, deliver, and evaluate a social media campaign in support of Solve Climate. Guest speakers and discussion will focus on the theory and practice of using social media to engage audiences in climate action. Interns who complete the program will receive a certificate, and can request letters of recommendation from Dr. Eban Goodstein, Director of the Bard Graduate Programs in Sustainability.
You will be working with state host institutions including:
University of Alaska Fairbanks
College of Charleston
Sewanee - U of South
UW Eau Claire
