The Power Dialog: Social Media and Partnership Intern
During the fourth week of March 2016, the Power Dialog will support hundreds of college and university faculty members in all fifty states to take their classes— numbering more than ten thousands students— on a field trip to their state capitol. There they will meet as groups with their state’s officials in charge of implementation planning for the EPA’s Clean Power Plan.
The Center for Environmental Policy (CEP) at Bard College will organize the Power Dialog. Resources for the Future (RFF) will provide educational opportunities to prepare students for the Dialog.
The power dialog will result in ten thousand plus young people weighing-in live on proposed carbon regulations, state policy-makers across the country hearing from a major constituency that would otherwise be silent, and widespread media coverage of the carbon regulation process.
The Bard Center for Environmental Policy seeks a summer intern to help develop and implement a social media strategy, and develop partnerships with youth-led climate and clean energy organizations. The intern will also be responsible for helping to organize and staff a summer strategy conference for the steering committee of the Power Dialog. The internship is a fantastic opportunity to develop grassroots organizing skills and to experience the strategic development of a major national campaign.
