Summer 2013 | Greenpeace Semester

Do you believe people have the power to make a difference for the environment? Do you want to learn the skills of social change and get experience for a career in advocacy? If so, check out Greenpeace’s environmental training program called the Greenpeace Semester. The Greenpeace Semester, located in Washington D.C., is a great opportunity for you to work on environmental issues you care about, side-by-side with environmental advocates, and get hands-on experience and training in environmental activism, creative and strategic campaigning, and grassroots organizing – and applications are now being accepted for summer and fall 2013.

During the program, participants learn about some of the most pressing environmental problems and how to have a greater impact in the local and global community. Workshops include campaign strategy, in-depth briefings on critical issues, working with the media, how to recruit and train volunteers, using social media for a cause, and organizing successful events.

Whether you're newly interested in sustainability or you are already involved on campus, the Greenpeace Semester is a great way to learn from one of the largest global environmental organizations and work on issues that you really care about. It’s also a great experience to have under your belt if you’re interested in pursuing environmental work or social change as a profession.

Scholarships are available and many students receive course credit for the program.
