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 Summer 2019 fellowship positions.
Fellows will spend 5-10 hours a week from June through August on passing equitable and science-based climate policy through various projects. This educational and supportive arrangement is designed to build the strong and diverse coalition of leaders needed to pass fair and effective climate policy. Assignments include:
- Educating students on your campus about the importance of pricing greenhouse gas emissions
- Weekly video calls with staff and other fellows to discuss strategy and assignments
- Identifying and securing opportunities to attend, table, or speak at community events
- Organizing campus trainings in support of equitable climate policy
- Writing and submitting media materials, including letters to the editor, op-eds, and blog posts
- Helping to organize informational and community-building events (concerts, house parties, panels, forums, etc.).
Additionally, fellows will be encouraged to actively participate in team decisions around strategy, effective messaging, and targeted outreach with a strong focus on the campus community.
All campuses in Washington.
Start and end dates are flexible depending on your school schedule, but the general time frame for the Summer Fellowship is approximately June 15th - August 24th.
Application deadline is May 31st. An Our Climate Field Organizer will follow up to schedule a 30-minute interview if you seem to be a good fit for the position. Questions concerning the Washington Fellowship can be directed to Emily at email@example.com
