Apparently there are “green jobs” after all, or at least “green grants”—in universities. “The Pollination Project, in partnership with the Institute for Humane Education, is offering up to 20 grant awards in Fall, 2013, for educators to create projects that support their students in making a positive difference in the world,” according to the project web site. “We are seeking educators who are committed to bringing forward a just, peaceful, and healthy world through projects that directly promote environmental stewardship, social justice, human rights or animal protection.”
“Before applying, please click here to learn more about humane education and make sure the program is a fit for you. Applications will be accepted from any educator, at any level (preschool through post-graduate), anywhere in the world, with priority given to educators working in traditionally underserved communities.
“THE GRANT AWARD INCLUDES:
- “A $1,000 grant from the Pollination Project to launch or expand a social change project in your school.
- “Paid tuition in the Institute for Humane Education 6-week online course, Teaching for a Positive Future. (CEUs are available in most states.)
- “Peer support from like-minded educators.
- “If applicable, additional p/r and media support and visibility for your project.”
