Winter Sustainable Micro-Internships

UMD is working with Universitas 21 (U21) to offer a free online, international micro-internship opportunity for students around the world in December 2021 and/or January 2022. 

 

These two week micro-internships are thematically aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the United Nations.

 

3-17 December 2021 - SDG focus: Quality Education 

 

7-21 January 2022 SDG focus: Gender Equity

 

14-28 January 2022 SDG focus: Climate Action

 

Over the two-week program you will be presented with an ongoing sustainability challenge from your host employer and work in groups (spanning 18 counties and 19 time zones) to innovate a solution and how to communicate this with senior stakeholders. The internships involve two 2.5 hour live online sessions at the start and end of the two-week program, with the rest of the project work undertaken flexibly, online around your other commitments.

 

This unique experience is open to undergraduate and graduate students.

 

Applications close on Wednesday, November 17, 11:59 p.m. (ET).
