Paid summer internship

The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that works to build support for progressive organizations across the country.  We've run campaigns for USPIRG, Environment America, the Human Rights Campaign, the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, and Fair Share Alliance.

This summer, we are running an office in Philadelphia, PA to build support for PennEnvironment's campaign to save the bees.

Millions of bees are dying off every year, putting our ecosystem and food supply at risk. Bees pollinate most of our food: everything from apples and broccoli to coffee beans and chocolate. 

One of the major reasons is a relatively new type of pesticides called neonicotinoids, or "neonics," which are about 6000 times more toxic to bees than DDT. Scientists, farmers and beekeepers have sounded the alarm, and now PennEnvironment is running a campaign to educate the public and build public support in order to get the EPA to ban these dangerous chemicals. 

This is your chance to spend your summer working for a great cause, while gaining valuable campaign leadership experience and making on average between $9-15/hour. 
Fill out the form here to set up an interview and to hear more about the positions we have available.

Summer Study Abroad at Oxford (England)

Oxford University is offering a summer program with emphasis on the environment.  UK Higher Education is quite different from ours, and as a result this program does not appear grant course credits, at least not in the way we think of them.  However, if you interested, come see me and we can figure out a way to get this experience to count toward your degree.

Earth Week celebrations

My name is Ashley Sidhu and I am VP of Students for Environmental Awareness. Earth Week is on Friday, April 22nd, and in celebration, several organizations on campus are holding events that discuss environmental topics. As secretary to the chair of the environmental science department, I was wondering if you could distribute this email throughout the department list serve so that students and professors can peruse and attend events during the week.

SEA is holding three free movie screenings this week. On Monday 18th, Take Back the Tap and SEA are showing Flow. Wednesday 20th, SEA is showing Antarctic Edge and on Thursday 21st, we are showing Catching the Sun. All events will serve food and the 20th & 21st events will include post-film panel discussions. Environmental Science majors will find these events relevant to their interests and provide them with both leisure and education. Attached are the flyers for the events and below is the website that lists the details.

Thank you so much! I hope you can send this out to as many people as possible!
