Our Current Interns

Solveigh Barney
Intern for Community Organizing

I am a senior at Macalester College pursuing a degree in Environmental Studies and Religious Studies with a minor in Psychology. During my past few years in college, I have spent a lot of my time exploring the intersectionality between religion and the environment, which has led me to many opportunities, including serving as a delegate of the Episcopal Church to the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), starting a Creation Care Committee for my home Episcopal Diocese of North Dakota, and studying abroad in Nepal where I learned from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. I hope this internship helps further my involvement in climate action and on-the-ground campaigns while also learning how to best engage with community connectors and faith communities in pursuing their environmental goals.
