Intern Project Description:
The intern will be responsible for improving social media communication regarding the Natural Resilience Fund, Inc. (NRF). The NRF is a 501c3 not-for-profit corporation organized as a public charity to provide advocacy and insight into the massive amounts of capital required for climate resilience infrastructure projects worldwide between now and the year 2050.
The intern will set up and augment social media avenues such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn; create a distribution list and evaluate our blog to help further communication and build a worldwide network of people to help build awareness for the imperative need for climate resilience. Weekly correspondence will be provided by Intern to the Project Manager consisting of efforts undertaken and completed. There are currently four board members of The NRF: Eric Kaufman, Joaquin Matias, James Sellinger and Andrew Chintz. We can accommodate four internships and two interns have already been selected for this summer.
The project will culminate in a detailed report, geared towards Millennials, explaining why massive amounts of investment are required for climate resilience and a cogent and persuasive argument for people to use their intellect and creativity to help spur action in this essential and growing industry known as climate resilience.
We are still actively looking for $1 million of funding to really accelerate the growth of The NRF. Obviously, we will accept any size donations. We are a registered 501c3 entity so all contributions are tax deductible here in the U.S.
We just celebrated our third anniversary since the founding of The Natural Resilience Fund, Inc. (NRF). To date, I have been funding this public charity with my own funds but I would like to greatly expand the concept internationally. I am hoping you know some entities that might be interested in helping fund future NRF operations. Our pilot project, Friends of the Dryline, helped advocate for $11 million more in planning dollars and a $100 million commitment by the City of New York. http://friendsofthedryline.org
Here is a link to the NRF business plan: http://bit.ly/1U8PrGE If you know of anyone who might have an interest, feel free to forward the link. Thank you in advance for any assistance you might be able to provide.
If we receive funding, we can start paying people and produce sustainable and resilient jobs; this is the future for our young people, in my opinion.
Best regards and I hope you all are well,
