The Sierra Club periodically conducts a training seminar revolving around Population issues. The Sierra Club is active with population issues because they see, as I do, that reducing the population is important to making the world better in so many ways including combating climate change.
Their program is free, as a matter of fact, they pay for lodging, provide most of the meals, and will even pick up some or all of the transportation costs to Washington DC if you want. I suspect that this seminar will be similar to the one I went to. In the fall seminar they accepted only about half of the applications. They purposely accepted the applications from a wide range of people… specifically selecting half that were younger than 26 and half that were older.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and [masked].
Here is the Sierra Club’s introduction of the program:
Population Activist Training
The Spring Activist Training and Fellowship is scheduled for February 8-9, 2014, prior to the Good Jobs Green Jobs conference in Washington, D.C. Join us for the weekend to learn more about the intersections between population, health, and the environment; to meet researchers and change-makers in the field; and to gain tools to help you return to your community with ideas for advocacy and action.
The application, which is due by January 3, 2014, is available here:
