Description: 

The Put A Price On It campaign, in conjunction with Citizens' Climate Lobby, mobilizes students and young people to enact carbon pricing policy. There are three concrete ways for students to plug into the campaign. Join us!

1. Join our action team. Join a network of students leaders from across the country who are working to #PutAPriceOnIt. You'll be added to our listserv for occasional updates, included in our Facebook group, receive weekly tasks that are completely optional, but give you an opportunity to work on the most important climate fight of our time.

2. Become a field representative. Similarly to the Action Team, becoming a Field Rep allows you to join a network of carbon pricing champions across the country organizing on their campuses and in their community -- but it's slightly more of a commitment. We form a relationship to figure out the best and most effective way for you to get involved. Maybe that's lobbying, organizing, art, education, research etc. This is good for people who want to be a leader, but also need to be flexible because they are already really involved with other things. Most students give 2-3 hours a week, but maybe one week you have finals and can't give any and the next you want to do 5+? Totally fine.

3. Apply to be a Spring Fellow. Our Fellowship Program is more formal, comprised of a team of 15 students each semester who work closely together and on their campuses to build the carbon pricing movement and advance policy. We ask Fellows to give 5-10 hours/week, in which you will gain experience coordinating student carbon pricing initiatives, rallying public support for a national and state carbon pricing policy, and directly engaging with lawmakers through lobbying actions. Read more about the Fellowship here. Any questions regarding the fellowship can be sent to Cassidy at cassidy@theclimatesolution.com. Join us!

If you are interested in joining the Action Team or becoming a Field Rep, please email Tom at Tom@theclimatesolution.com. Let's #PutAPriceOnIt!
