Opportunity for Summer Internship

The non-profit environmental organization, OurEarth.org, is currently looking for summer interns and we would like to get in touch with students to see if they might be interested in working with us. 

This summer join the OurEarth.org community and become an intern in OurEarth.org's 2011 Environmental Leadership Program. This is a rare opportunity for you to develop as a leader and learn many of the skills that are necessary if you want to create significant environmental changes in the future.

In addition to leadership training, you will work on a number of diverse environmental projects that will help the OurEarth.org organization and website expand, be in a team with students from other colleges, earn course credit, connect with OurEarth.org's large network of environmental professionals, and because OurEarth.org is still a young organization this is an opportunity to join on the ground floor of many up-and-coming initiatives.

Lastly, for added flexibility, all work is done remotely so you can work from your home, campus, or anywhere else, yet you will still have very frequent contact with the OurEarth.org management and other interns via conference calls, email, webinars, and other electronic mediums.

OurEarth.org is a national 501(c)3 non-profit organization and grassroots initiative that aims to aid and develop environmental leaders, in part, by transforming the way environmental programs, activities, and information are found on the internet. A more detailed program description, the internship application, and further information about the OurEarth.org organization is available here: http://www.ourearth.org/students/.

Finally, the program is open to both undergraduate and graduate students. If you want to apply, act quickly since admission is done on a ROLLING BASIS and acceptances will begin to be mailed in March. If you have any questions, please contact John Ullman at (410) 878-6485 or jgu@duke.edu, to get additional information.

Land & Freedom: Talking Food Systems
Visiting local gardens, farmers markets, and other fresh food projects in San Diego's diverse urban neighborhoods, Land & Freedom speaks with residents that are taking advantage of the city's reformed urban agriculture ordinances. Residents are finding alternatives to a food system that has historically distressed low income communities. Residents are eating healthier with produce they've grown themselves, using community gardens like they would use parks, and displaying respect for the neighborhoods they live in. Still, many people continue to struggle with the lack of affordable fresh produce readily available within neighborhoods and other resources to improve their lives.

About filmmaker:
Brian Myers, a video producer with the Media Arts Center San Diego, works with under-served communities to document the voice of local community members for the Speak City Heights multimedia collaborative. As a media justice activist he works on a variety of independent media projects for community groups, such as May Day Workers Film Festival, and other organizations focused on social justice.
