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.

Climate Sense Intern Catherine Kennedy partnered with the Department of Environment, Energy, and Climate Action, conducting Coastal Hazard Assessments: looking at provincially-owned critical infrastructure and determined if they fall in a coastal hazard assessment zone, and create reports that outline the average and max rates of erosion and the percentage of the property that falls in a minimal to high flood hazard zone.
We are pleased to present Catherine's final project.
