We offer two types of internships at GENI

(please apply for only one)

2015 Global Classroom Summer Series - Geodesign

The GENI Summer Series tackles the challenges of our times. Sustainability means we plan a future that meets today's needs and the needs for generations to follow. Resiliency means we must plan to adapt and mitigate the consequences of climate change.


Geodesign will build on these two concepts and ask: How do we transition an energy system for a nations and cities, to be 100% renewable, reliable 24/7 and is cost competitive? How can we supply clean water to all?

Why is this needed? Our world will grow from 7.2 billion to 10 billion people in the next few decades. Most of them will live in growing cities. Demands for all resources will increase: especially food, clean water and natural resources. Climate change from our fossil fuel use is causing severe consequences: stronger storms, extended droughts, disease migration and sea level rise. If trends continue, the predictions are dire for all nations.

11 week series:

June 15 – August 27

Four days/week.

Public Presentations planned weekly.

This project has been hugely successful and beneficial to the students in the past.
