About earth&us (http://www.earthandus.org/):
earth&us exists to protect and serve our common resources - air, water, soil and other essential resources to ensure that life in all its diversity and beauty sustains in future. We do this to reduce unnecessary suffering for all sentient beings (all being able to perceive or feel things).

Our work involves awareness and education on environmental sustainability; provision of basic needs in a sustainable way and information dissemination that leads to behavior change. We use technology, systems thinking, rapid prototyping and innovation as levers in our projects.

We engage with institutions and corporates on a variety of assignments including consulting projects, research and development, awareness and behavior change initiatives, and technology-based solutions to serve the commons and promote environmental sustainability. Invariably, our work leads to positive social impact. We have impacted 200,000 children through CSR initiatives with corporates.
About the Internship:
We are offering a couple of environmental science professionals the possibility to join our team and put their skills at service of some innovative and progressive projects. We need people who are passionate about environment and sustainability and walk the talk.

Our current main project is developing an application for measuring ethical consumer rating of products and companies by processing vast volumes of related and relevant digital information. Consumers are increasingly interested in the social, environmental and health impact of the products they buy and use. Presently, there is no comprehensive rating system available that evaluates various types of impact on the planet and people.
