Help us bring that work to a larger audience via City Atlas. Interns will curate content on an assigned speci fic theme within the Lifestyle section of the Atlas but will also have an opportunity to bring their own ideas and contributions to the project. You will also help us develop the database of organizations we cover on a more consistent basis and identify new organizations and developing initiatives. In sum, you will help us cover the best events, resources, and ideas that are going on in the world of sustainability in New York City.

You are: A self-starter, willing to work with minimal supervision, extremely organized, eager to learn. This is an entry-level internship.
