Climate Futures Fellowship

We unfortunately are not able to offer fellowships for the 2022-2023 year. Thank you for understanding!

Campus Climate Ambassadors

The Campus Climate Ambassadors program began in the Fall of 2018. It brings together students from Mennonite college campuses in the United States and Canada, and encourages them in their campus organizing work, offers training, and connection with other students from around the country. Cohorts start the year by attending a training session where they discussed climate communication, campus organizing, and the best way to connect their campuses together through a common passion for sustainability. The program is by recommendation only, so we don’t accept applications for the Ambassadors positions. If you would like to know more about the Campus Climate Ambassadors program, or have any questions about their work, email Joseph Harder at joseph.harder@sustainableclimatesolutions.org.
