We are sure you will find interning with ESG an invigorating and life transformative experience.

Interns speak

–   My time at ESG was extremely fruitful, and it showed me just how much effort environmental justice requires. I felt I learned more about the city in my 1 month at ESG than I have in years. I leave ESG enriched by fruitful experiences, and with the desire to be a more active part of my community – Dewansh Matharoo, Intern – July 2023

Volunteering with ESG gave me an opportunity to better understand the governance and legal aspects of the city as well as its societal requirements at the grassroots level. Our table discussions and conversations were very insightful.  I did both research and field-work. This enabled me to experience aspects of citizen involvement in governance which I was aware of only in the theoretical sense before. – Mrunali Sundar, July 2023

Good luck!
