The 2013 Summer Internship Program in Sustainability kicked off today with the first workshop. The two-hour long seminar, which will recur every Monday throughout the program, served to introduce interns to the office by discussing office procedures, program details, and the underlying concepts of sustainability.
Sixteen new interns make up the summer program and hold positions in a wide-range of sustainability initiatives. Throughout the summer, the workshops will facilitate collaboration among interns, including sharing networks and resources vital to program success, and will involve a long-term discussion of sustainability and behavior change through the lens of the book The Conservationist Manifesto by Scott Russell Sanders.
