The Climate Clock is a project, melding art, science, technology, and grassroots organizing to get the world to #ActInTime. The project is centered on a simple tool: a clock that counts down the critical time window to reach zero emissions (our “Deadline”), while tracking our progress on key solution pathways (“Lifelines”), which include the sum of energy generated by renewable energy sources, the currently total area of land and inland waters managed by Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities, the climate debt owed by high-emitting G20 countries, etc. By showing us what we need to do by when, the Clock frames our critical mission– a rapid and just transition to a safe climate future– and puts it at the forefront of our attention.
Climate Clock offers highly individualized internships, tailored to the intern’s interest and the organization’s needs. Interns have the opportunity to work with each of the nine teams at Climate Clock (campaigns, global community management, business development, fundraising, communications, operations, human resources, research, and technology) to gain a holistic understanding of Climate Clock’s work as a climate justice organization. We have teams in over 30 countries and work with front-line activists to hold decision-makers accountable to what science and justice demand. Interns will interact with activists from around the world and can contribute to campaigns targeting high-level decision-makers globally, even allowing interns to further develop their language skills in a professional setting.
