A virtual sustainability boot camp is getting 28 Indiana University students ready to assist Indiana businesses, nonprofits and municipalities during the summer. The weeklong program started May 17 to train the Indiana Climate Fellows in greenhouse gas emissions inventory and climate action planning.
Sustain IU pairs students with partner organizations through the Indiana Sustainability Development Program's summer fellowship opportunity. The program combats the loss of workforce talent in sustainability by connecting the talent produced by IU's academic programs to sustainability needs statewide. The fellowship places an emphasis on climate change mitigation and adaptation, and fellows work alongside professionals on shared objectives.
The Indiana Sustainability Development Program also collaborates closely with IU's Environmental Resilience Institute, a partnership that leverages the climate and sustainability expertise of IU faculty in service of communities across the Hoosier state.
