Internships to Protect our Environment
If you care about the environment and want to make a difference, apply to be a PennEnvironment intern today.
What do interns with PennEnvironment do? You’ll help us educate and engage citizens on the most critical environmental issues of our time. You’ll help us get our issues into the media, build coalitions, organize events and lobby decision-makers. Ultimately, you’ll help us build the kind of public support it takes to win.
Do you want 100% renewable energy? We’re committed to a 100% renewable energy future, and we’re advocating for policies that will bring more solar and wind power to more people and communities right now.
Do you want to save bees and other pollinators from extinction? A recent U.N. report found that bees and other pollinators are facing extinction – and given that bees pollinate everything from almonds to strawberries, we know that “no bees” means “no food.” So we’re gathering support for a ban on toxic ‘neonicotinoid’ pesticides.
Do you want to keep our public lands permanently protected and in public hands? We believe we need more wilderness, more national parks, and more public lands that are permanently protected. So we’re getting the word out through the media to not only stop reckless moves to sell off our public lands or open them to mining, drilling and development. We want to expand their protection and establish more national monuments.
Thinking boldly about a green future is a start, but we know it’s not enough.
