Summer Institute

The ‘Environmental Lobbyists’

There will be two week-long academies; each covering the same material. The first academy will be held at Amherst College 9am-4pm daily, beginning Monday, July 8th and running through Friday, July 12th. The second academy will be held at Smith College in the Campus Center and run from Monday, July 22nd through Friday July 26th.

The cost of a week-long academy is $275, however a sliding scale is available for those with financial need. A $75 deposit to hold a space, and which goes toward the cost of the week, is due a week before the program begins. Checks should be made out to Center for Environmental Civics and mailed to Center for Environmental Civics, P.O.Box 60456, Florence, MA 01062-9998. Credit card payments, via PayPal, will be available here soon.

Potential participants should fill out and send in the accompanying application form. CEC is looking for motivated students who are sincerely interested in learning about and participating in environmental governance and issues. The applications are for our information only and so that we can learn enough about you to insure that we can best provide for your needs.

The workshops are designed for current high school juniors or seniors, however, other students may apply if they submit a recommendation from one of their current teachers (history or science faculty preferred but not mandatory). Participants will need to bring snacks and lunch, however, there will be food/drinks available for purchase nearby. The programs are designed to accommodate approximately twenty students, so applications should be made soon. Admission is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

For any questions regarding the academies, email paul@centerforenvironmentalcivics.org or call Paul Newlin at 413-665-3741.
