Put A Price On It is a national campaign that mobilizes young people to advocate for science-based and equitable pricing policies at the state and national level. By putting a price on carbon, we hold polluters accountable and transition our economy to a clean energy future. Students will train and organize other students, rallying public support for carbon pricing policy, and engage directly with elected officials. Applications are currently being accepted for our Spring 2019 fellowship positions.
Fellows will spend 5-10 hours a week from January through May on passing equitable and science-based climate policy. This educational and supportive arrangement is designed to build the strong and diverse coalition of leaders needed to pass fair and effective climate policy.
