Green Corps is coming to campus!
Right now Green Corps, the Field School for Environmental Organizing, is looking to hire! Our early application deadline is fast approaching (October 11th) and I am trying to get the word out to as many students when I come back to campus on Oct. 15th and 16th!
I am in the current Green Corps class working on a campaign at UNH with the Climate Reality Project to get hundreds of thousands of students to demand that world leaders make a strong global commitment at the Paris climate talks in December to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
I will be holding an info session at Harvard about Green Corps, interviewing potential candidates, and trying to reach out to as many students as possible.
