The United Nations Foundation works to support the UN’s ability to deliver on global progress for all, by building diverse communities of support from all sectors and geographies around key UN priorities and issues.
The UN Foundation’s communications work on climate change, energy, and the environment spans the globe to support the UN’s efforts to meet the Paris climate agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals. This internship, housed within the UN Foundation’s Public Affairs team, will support our involvement in the Global Climate Action Summit and the UN General Assembly, both in September, as well as help to position us to carry forward long-term messages around climate and the SDGs.
The Climate Communications intern will provide logistical, outreach, communications, and events support to the Public Affairs team as we develop and execute global engagements, both in-person and digitally, around major moments in September including the Global Climate Action Summit, Social Good Summit, UNGA and others.
In addition to building outreach lists of key partners and helping to track and support engagements, the Climate Communications intern will participate in and help shape the global digital activations in the lead-up to and through the Summit in September, with the ability to work on multiple priority issues at the Foundation.
The Intern will report to the Senior Manager of Communications for Energy, Climate, and the Environment.
The United Nations Foundation is happy to host interns who are able to receive academic credit or a stipend through their college or university. However, please note that it is not a requirement in order to intern with us
