The Institute for Multi-Track Diplomacy (IMTD) is seeking a motivated and reliable person to serve as an intern for our Climate Change program. The position is unpaid, but applicants can use the position for internship credit.
Since 1992, IMTD has completed over 17 major peacebuilding projects, all spanning a minimum of two years, and others extending to more than a decade. IMTD's efforts have made the term "multi-track diplomacy" a common phrase in conflict resolution academia. Most recently, we have worked to utilize the multi-track model to address other issues, such as climate change. IMTD's Climate Change program works to apply a systems-based approach to climate change mitigation.
