The intern will work with staff in the Planning and Community Environment Department to assist in implementation of the Palo Alto Green Building Program. The intern will learn the green building rating systems and how they aid at achieving reduced community environmental impact and improved community health. Additionally how the impact of reduction and improvement is measured, and is used to inform public policy. Projects will vary. The intern will learn how sustainable city programs can be developed, implemented, and successfully measured, and more importantly will learn the role green building plays in reducing our impact on the environment and human health.
Please note: This is a Volunteer opportunity. There will be no salary or stipend offered.
