[Internship] Sustainable Chicago Sports Project Winter & Spring Internship (due Dec 31st)

The Sustainable Chicago Sports Project is an environmental conservation effort led by the Green Chicago Restaurant Coalition (‘GCRC’), the City of Chicago, and the University of Chicago. This project is set to last through June 2014, when the Green Sports Alliance Summit will be held in Chicago. The Sustainable Chicago Sports Project will engage a wide array of stakeholders, including experts in waste, water, stormwater and energy management, food procurement, pollution reduction, construction, transportation, and operations to identify and implement sustainability best practices at each stadium and with each team in Chicago’s sports industry.

Project Management Internship

While GCRC staff are in charge of managing the overall project, the management intern will work to ensure that all involved parties (student groups at University of Chicago, the City of Chicago, GCRC, and teams & stadiums) are in communication and that everyone is up to date on the progress of the project. This intern will also be in charge of managing a database of information for the project. The Management Intern will be in contact with all involved parties and will be responsible for checking in on a regular basis.
