The ClimateSense Professional Internship Program is designed to build adaptation capacity in recent post-secondary students, as well as host organizations within the public and private sectors.
A number of Island organizations were selected to host a recent post-secondary graduate for a six (6) to twelve (12) month internship for 2021. During this time, our interns worked with mentors within the host organization to complete a sector-specific adaptation project, and also took part in ClimateSense Training and Development Programs.
We are pleased to present our 2021 Internship Projects.
City of Charlottetown & Municipality of Victoria
Climate Sense Intern Quinn Howard partnered with both the City of Charlottetown and Rural Municipality of Victoria on a diverse set of landscape-based climate interventions. Work within the City of Charlottetown involved work in two main projects: The Resilient Homes-Parks People Project and the Community Climate Action Living Shoreline Project.
Quinn worked with the Rural Municipality of Victoria to complete a climate adaptation planning process, assessing climate risk to the ecosystems, municipal assets, and livelihoods to determine areas of high vulnerability and vision corresponding opportunities.
We are pleased to present Quinn Howard's final project.
