Virtual Internship with EPA – Ecolearn – Deadline to apply – July 26th

Hello, we have an opening for 6 virtual interns to teach environmental education in the Seattle metro area. Can you pass it on to your networks? The description of our specific project and the entire program is below. If you know of other program/internship coordinators at other schools, it would be great if you could forward this on to them as well. Thank you!

EPA Region 10 Virtual Internship EcoLearn – Teach exciting prepared environmental education lesson plans at local elementary schools in the Seattle metro area. Project code EPA-USA-1

The Virtual Student Foreign Service (VSFS) is the largest virtual internship program in the world! This year there are more than 1,000 vacancies with more than 30 federal agencies. VSFS offers unique mentoring and exposure to job opportunities within the U.S. government.

Applications for the 2017-18 VSFS program are open between July 2 and 26 on USAJOBS.gov. Real experience is waiting for U.S. college students across the federal government, including NASA, Smithsonian, State Department, CIA, National Parks Service, and others. You can see the projects offered at http://vsfs.state.gov/ by clicking on “See All Projects” at the top! To apply, students must log on to USAJOBS, create an account, build a resume, and upload a transcript.

Students play an important role in moving the government forward. There’s something for everyone: graphic design, research, mapping, videography, history, analysis, marketing, community management, writing, calculation, policy planning, app development, and more!

eInterns should expect to spend ten hours a week on their project from September through May. This is unpaid, volunteer work, but eInterns make connections that make a difference, gain valuable experience, and sometimes get course credit. All applicants must be U.S. citizens in student status at a university in the U.S. or abroad. VSFS is open to undergrad through PhD candidates taking classes full or part-time, in-person or on-line.

Learn more at our website, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter! Have questions? Get answers! Post them on our VSFS forum, sign up to receive notifications about VSFS and other internship opportunities under Keep Me Informed, and check in with your regional Diplomat in Residence.

All the best,

Team VSFS

The fine print: Applicants must be U.S. citizens enrolled in university level courses in the U.S. or abroad. Last year, we had students from undergraduate to PhD to part-time online students. A resume, transcript, and statement of interest are required as part of the application process. Interviews may be conducted in August. eInternships are unpaid and do not require a security clearance or travel.

Biodiversity Fellowship at Oxford

The Biodiversity Fellows Programme at ICCS – APPLICATIONS FOR THE AUTUMN 2017 FELLOWSHIP NOW OPEN

Generously supported by Merton College, University of Oxford.

One of the aims of the ICCS group is to improve engagement between researchers, conservation practitioners in the international and local NGO sectors, and businesses developing and implementing corporate biodiversity strategies, in order that scientific research is informed by, and meaningful for, real-world conservation issues.

There is a widely recognised problem of a mismatch between academic research and conservation practice, which we are keen to bridge. Conservation NGOs and businesses contain many highly skilled individuals who have substantial experience in implementing conservation on the ground, and often have collected excellent datasets which could contribute to the academic evidence base on policy effectiveness. However, often they do not have the time, technical skills or academic environment within which to write these datasets up for publication. To address this issue, ICCS offers a unique initiative in its Biodiversity Fellows Programme.

The programme offers NGO or business employees working on biodiversity conservation the chance to spend up to 3 months with the ICCS group at the University of Oxford, writing papers, developing ideas or writing grant proposals. The Fellow will be encouraged to take part in a range of valuable interactions with students (undergraduate and post-graduate) and potential donors. For example, through offering reading groups relating to their subject area, evening talks or individual guidance to students wishing to learn more about how to approach the real-world issues of biodiversity conservation worldwide. The Fellows will be encouraged to host or take part in ICCS workshops and technical events.

Who should apply?

We are targeting people who we feel would particularly benefit from this scheme. We particularly welcome applications from developing country nationals.

If you are a senior member of staff, who would benefit from the opportunities offered by stepping away from your NGO, governmental or business environment and commitments for a short period of time, to develop new strategic approaches, write up their ideas, or build partnerships, then this scheme may be right for you.

Alternatively, if you are at a relatively early stage in your career, and would benefit from the academic possibilities offered by the University of Oxford and the ICCS group you are also particularly welcome to apply. Particularly if you would benefit from learning new skills, analysing and writing up your datasets, and building an international network.

Conference | Sámi Role in Arctic Affairs: Politics, Research and Activism, June 20

Conference at the University of Washington

Sámi Role in Arctic Affairs: Politics, Research and Activism
20 June 2017 | 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. | UW Club, Yukon Room University of Washington
Space is limited. RSVP to cweseuc@uw.edu by June 14th to reserve a seat.
Clock hours available to K- 12 Teachers upon request.
A light breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided

Since the 1970’s the global Indigenous movement, building on the human rights movement, has gained considerable momentum.
In 2000, the United Nations founded the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues as the central coordinating body for matters
related to Indigenous peoples; in 2007, the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples was ratified establishing
international legal norms. Indigenous peoples are now playing a significant role in influencing international affairs via new transnational networks. The Sámi are a model for such influence.

Join us on June 20th for this one-day conference. Most of the presenters are Sámi themselves, working with aspects on
reclaiming Sámi identities and the struggle for the Sámi right to survival and well-being. Scholars and activists will
present their work followed by an open discussion with all participants and guests. We will end the day with dinner and
a discussion of future directions for Sámi studies and collaborations followed by a screening of “Sámi Blood”.

Special Guest Speakers:

Lis-Mari Hjortfors | Umeå University, Sámi Studies, Department of Language Studies Margaretha Uttjek | Department of Social Work, Umeå University, Sweden
May-Britt Öhman | Centre for Gender Research, Uppsala University; the Association of Sámi Related Research in Uppsala;
Deputy Member of the Swedish Sámi Parliament; member of Technoscience Research Group
Inge Frisk | Stockholm Sámi Association, member of Technoscience Research Group, Centre for Gender Research, Uppsala University
Troy Storfjell | Scandinavian Area Studies Program, Department of Languages and Literatures, Pacific Lutheran University Karin Eriksson | Scandinavian Studies, University of Washington

This event is sponsored by the International Policy Institute (funded by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York)
and Arctic and the International Relations initiative, Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies; the Canadian
Studies Center, Center for West European Studies, and Center for Global Studies; UW’s Scandinavian Studies; and UW’s Future of Ice initiative.

Autumn 2017: Perceptions of Nature in the Dense City

This Seminar on “Perceptions of Nature in the dense city” will focus on “practices integrating ecological systems in dense urban environments”.

Content: There is a current trend to design green environments and infrastructure in dense cities, which claim to be “Natural” or “representing Nature.” What is the “Nature” that designers and planners are referring to – and for what purpose? Is Nature a pristine condition in an untouched environment or can it be a hybridization of human and natural systems? How do such definitions and perceptions impact both professional approaches, and the public acceptance of new design idioms?

Through lectures, readings and discussions, this class will explore various perceptions and definitions of Nature associated with contemporary design processes and projects, especially in the context of climate change adaptation strategies. Independent research and case study will allow students to choose and investigate one particular aspect of these topics

Fall Seminar / 3 credits / LARCH 498K / 598K
Wednesdays 5:30 – 8:30pm / Gould 110
