Monday every week from 8 PM - 10 PM ET (New York time) for US participants,
or every week from 11 AM - 1 PM ET (New York time) for international

Solve Climate By 2030 <http://www.solveclimateby2030.org/> is mobilizing US
and international educators to engage over 100,000 students in dialog about
ambitious action to stabilize the climate. It culminates on the evening of
April 7, 2021, with 100+ simultaneous, university-hosted webinars, one in
fifty countries worldwide, and every US state, and in DC and Puerto Rico.
These dialogs will reveal ambitious things that need doing in Ghana and
Germany, Vietnam and Columbia, Kyrgyzstan and Australia, if we really aim
to stop climate change. Across the world, students can ask their teachers
to #makeclimateaclass,
<https://www.bard.edu/cep/solardominance/take-action/#class> by assigning
their regional webinar as homework, and then using our course-specific
guides to talking about climate change in courses on art, biology,
philosophy, music, engineering or language and many other subjects.


Intern teams will design, deliver, and evaluate a social media campaign in
support of Solve Climate By 2030.  Guest speakers and discussion will focus
on the theory and practice of using social media to engage audiences in
climate action. Interns who complete the program will receive a
certificate, and can request letters of recommendation from Dr. Eban
Goodstein, Director of the Bard Graduate Programs in Sustainability
<https://gps.bard.edu/>, which is the organization sponsoring the
internship. Please direct questions to ebangood at bard.edu.
