Environmental Health Fellow (Nomintion Deadline)
The Human Impacts Institute, which is an organization that uses arts and culture to inspire environmental action for social good is looking for New York City-based environmental health leaders to participate in a six-month fellowship as part of a pilot program designed to showcase how community-based leadership and creativity are central to the health and wellbeing of our City.  The Brooklyn Environmental Health Lab (BEHL) is experimenting with new ways to build resilience to environmental health threats, while more creatively connecting our communities to diverse pollution prevention tools. The two-year pilot brings NYC health experts together with local artists to create interactive exhibits throughout NYC, a series of virtual and in-person community workshops, and free, public soil, air, and water testing via a mobile testing lab. 10 Environmental Health Fellows will be selected who show exemplary vision and dedication to reducing environmental pollution risks and helping mitigate existing impacts. Fellows will receive many exciting benefits, including: 
  • International recognition as an environmental health leader
  • Six-months of creative, professional development support (April-Sept 2021)
  • One-week long training from The Moth on storytelling, including a community showcase
  • A citywide platform to share their knowledge and initiatives 
  • A network of diverse environmental health experts
  • Collaboration with an Impact Artist Fellow to creatively communicate work and impact
  • Highlighting work in a city-wide exhibit 
  • $500 stipend upon completion of the Fellowship
Environmental Health Fellows will be asked to participate in: 
  • Monthly, virtual networking meetings with Fellowship cohort
  • Weeklong storytelling training 
  • One public workshop on their expertise
  • One social media takeover day
  • Meetings with Impact Artist Fellow (timeline will be set together)
