Job Openings and Announcements!

Hello Planeteers!

I hope all of you are enjoying the last few days of winter break while it is still here.  Before we all go back to school just thought we would through out a few announcements.

Firstly, CSULB has a new Sustainability Task Force, which is a group dedicated to making CSULB a sustainable campus through all sorts of projects, as small as having sustainable project mixers to applying for grants to put solar panels on the pyramid.  They are currently looking for sustainable projects for their mixers and design competitions, so if you or someone you know has any kind of project (finished or in progress) that is related to sustainability and wouldn't mind sharing with others, please don't be shy and send me an email.  

Secondly, there are a lot of jobs/internships available now all across the board, and we thought we would share those with you.  See the attachments and message below for more information.   

Last, but certainly not least, our first club meeting will be Tuesday, February 8th, 12:30 - 1:30 PM in USU 305, so mark that on your calendars!

Looking forward to getting together with all of you this semester and doing what we love: saving the planet  :)

Dear Professor Paul Laris,

Happy New Year from Greenpeace! As we welcome 2011, the Greenpeace Student Training team has some updates about our program in the new year.

• We have a new name. Formerly the Greenpeace Organizing Term, we have recently changed our name to Greenpeace Semester. The program you have come to know has not changed - we've adopted Greenpeace Semester because we think it explains what we're all about a little bit better: a semester at Greenpeace!

• We have a new website. You may have noticed that the layout for our site has changed a bit. We now have a FAQ page specifically for university faculty.

• We have new summer sessions. The Greenpeace Semester is introducing a five week training offered twice this summer in Washington, DC. This is a great opportunity for students who are unable to take a full semester off of school but still want to receive activist training from Greenpeace.

Many of you have sent announcements, emailed students, hung fliers on your campus, and allowed our staff to come into your classrooms in previous semesters. We really do appreciate your continued support. Looking ahead, we still have a lot of work to do: getting campuses across the country to quit coal, putting an end to corporate pollution, and continuing to convince elected officials to pass strong environmental legislation.

The solution is simple: we need people to take action.

We would love to work with students from your campus who are ready to develop their leadership skills and become advocates for change! Can you forward the message below to students who might be interested in joining Greenpeace for a semester?


The Greenpeace Semester is a great opportunity to receive hands-on training that will give you the skills you need to become an environmental leader.

Many students feel they just don't have the skills to rally hundreds of their peers, have a big impact on corporations, or feel they're able to pressure our elected officials. During the Greenpeace Semester, you will learn about current environmental issues and solutions. You'll also be trained by experts in grassroots organizing, leadership, media, and campaign strategy.

Many students receive course credit for the semester through their university, and program staff will work with you to obtain credit.

Applications are currently open for our summer semesters, and our early deadline is approaching on February 7th! Historically, two-thirds of Greenpeace Semester students have been early applicants. Don't wait, apply for the Greenpeace Semester today!

Contact us if you have any questions at usa-semester@greenpeace.org.
