Where Jobs Are Green

Posted By Malcolm A. Kline On August 13, 2013 @ 1:05 pm In Faculty Lounge | No Comments

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 [1], 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 [2]. “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 [3] 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. [4]  (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.”
