This summer, the Climate Action Business Association will be working with Greenovate on the Businesses Acting on Rising Seas (BARS) Campaign. The main goal of the BARS campaign is to get the best available information on climate change resiliency planning and adaptation out to the Massachusetts local business community. They are currently looking for candidates willing to be part of their team, working with businesses, politicians, and grass-root leaders to conduct outreach. The internship will last 10 weeks and the program will give participants a chance to work in depth on corporate sustainability and resiliency planning, build public engagement skills, and the to be part of a quickly growing field of hyper-driven peers.
