The Climate Institute and its Dartmouth Interns are here on campus to present ways in which you can become active in climate problem solving and become leaders in the field. The Climate Institute is the world’s first NGO based solely on addressing climate change. Formed in 1986, its primary aim is to empower students through research and the communication of climate awareness. We are now looking to spread the word of how to become involved in the dynamic world of climate science.

The Center for Environmental Leadership Training (CELT) is the educational arm of the Climate Institute, based in Hanover, NH. A rapidly growing team of students and international virtual interns, they are working on several key projects to promote climate awareness and create problem solvers of us all, including:   

- CELT's Smart Solutions Blog
- Problem solving games
- The Tickell Climate Network
- Writing pieces for the Climate Alert
- Potential internships in the U.S. and Mexico for the upcoming fall and winter terms

Join us for a light lunch and a chance to talk with the president of The Climate Institute, Mr. John Topping Jr. '64, and our panel of current CELT interns and graduate fellows to see how you can become involved in climate issues.
