    Do you want to do something more for climate change that could create a large positive impact? The Beyond Doom and Gloom: Climate Solutions initiative is looking for college students and faculty interested in climate solutions. This opportunity has been developed by two networks of sixty national higher education associations - HEASC and DANS. Many climate-related governmental policy decisions are being made at the regional and state levels. We are looking for both: individual students and faculty to become a national Fellow, and students needing a course project or internship. Interested students or faculty can be a Sustainability Policy Partner Fellow and connect their campus with regional and state-level climate and environmental organizations. Student projects can contribute as well. HEASC will support you through regular check-ins, email templates, and a connection with a network of other Sustainability Policy Partners across the country.
