Testimonial from a 2012 Intern:
“While interning for The Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development (ICSD), I contributed in organizing the Interfaith Conference on Climate Change in Jerusalem. I was not just an important asset to the organization, but by working with ICSD I feel that I was able to have a real impact on society and the environment. The Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development is doing pioneering work in the field of ecology and fighting climate change by encouraging communities to live more sustainably.
Specifically, I used my basic knowledge of film/movie editing to help make promotional videos and short films for the conference, and helped create the world’s first database with videos of religious speakers on Ecology. The hours were compatible with my activities as part of a Gap Year program… The office is in a very convenient part of town. My time working for ICSD was really gratifying!”
