Student Leadership Opportunities

ERC students

We are dedicated to providing students with meaningful experiences that include but also go beyond traditional classroom and research settings. We offer direct, hands-on opportunities, both paid and unpaid, aimed at kickstarting students’ participation in the dynamic world of climate justice.


Through these opportunities, students will learn the skills necessary to become effective professionals and climate justice leaders.
