Sustainability Internships

Help Create a Sustainable Future!
Internships with real involvement, creativity, and independent thinking

Clean Air Campaign – NEW Air quality in both Lehigh & Northampton Counties is so poor that it fails to meet EPA standards and is among the worst in the nation. Childhood asthma rates in some local schools are over four times the national average. Help raise awareness and generate action.

Collective Memory Project – NEW Work with a new project that seeks to put a human face on immigration in the Lehigh Valley by creating an oral history & photography project that will be displayed in community locations throughout the Lehigh Valley.

Communications & Media – NEW Help develop ways to effectively communicate the concepts and ideas of sustainability to the public, in partnership with the Clean Air Campaign, Public Health project, and other sustainability projects.

Public Health & Sustainability – NEW Help create wider awareness of the impacts on public health of taking action to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, serve healthier food, reduce commuting trips, minimize waste, and implement other sustainable practices.

Campus Sustainability – Get your campus up to speed on sustainability, including energy conservation, local and organic food, Fair Trade, composting, green building, transportation, recycling, waste minimization, and related efforts.

Democracy in Action – Take action to create change in public or institutional policy in connection with sustainability and social justice issues, working with the Alliance and/or other local organizations.

Work on something that matters to you—join an existing action project or help start a new one.

Editing & Publishing – Coordinate content and publication of the Alliance’s annual directory of Organizations That Promote Sustainable Communities and our Earth Days Calendar.

Graphic Design – Improve visual aspects of efforts to raise awareness of sustainability issues and help with graphic design aspects of the Alliance’s annual directory of Organizations That Promote Sustainable Communities and Earth Days Calendar.

Sustainability in Business – Environmental responsibility and sustainability are often thought of as being in conflict with good business practices, but in most cases sustainability is good business.

Explore the business side of sustainability.
