BOB BRISTER
Membership Coordinator
Utah Environmental Congress
• Volunteering in an environmental advocacy organization is a great place to get your foot in the door.
• Formal education for organizing helps, but organizing is best learned by doing it. Learn by doing. You'll make mistakes, but that's okay because you learn from them.
• With the low pay and instability of environmental advocacy positions, make sure you have the dedication that is required to enter this field.
With 30 years of experience in the field of peace, social justice and environmental advocacy, Bob Bristol speaks from first-hand knowledge. Bob says wolves are a major environmental topic of the moment in Utah. Environmental activists like Bob are working hard to bring them back to the state over the objection of most Utah politicians and some in the ranching and hunting communities. The Campaign to Recover Wolves in Utah is a multi organization initiative championed by a network of scientists, wolf advocates, and community outreach organizers. This coalition seeks to allow wolves back onto public lands in an effort to re-balance the ecosystem with a top predator.

In his position as Membership Coordinator, Bob Brister's community outreach includes publishing a newsletter, running pro-wolf postcard campaigns, and tabling (staffing a booth at events with publications and information). Bob sees renewable energy as the future of the job growth in Utah. Utah is a major producer of fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas, while it's climate and sunshine would make it ideal for solar energy. Bob would prefer this to take the form of rooftop solar panels as opposed to larger industrial grade power plants on public lands.
ARTHUR MORRIS
Clean Energy Analyst
HEAL ( Healthy Environmental Alliance Of Utah)
• Get training at Green Corps. This organization trains college students to develop environmental campaigns.
• Classes in economics, communications, and analytical sciences are valuable for students seeking positions in an advocacy organization like HEAL Utah.
• The same things that make you valuable in the private sector make you valuable to a non-profit. Non-profit organizations need people with skills in office software, information technology, web programming, and social media.
HEAL Utah works to address the unique environmental health and safety needs of the state of Utah. As Clean Energy Analyst at HEAL, Arthur Morris has insight into most of the green and environmental issues facing Utah. Arthur works on clean energy initiatives that address some issues that are common in many states. However, nuclear power, mining, and waste are more pressing in Utah than most other places. Not only is a significant amount of uranium mined there, but Utah has been used as a dumping ground for nuclear waste from other states.
ROB SISSON
President
Republicans For Environmental Protection
• Working as a staffer in a political organization is a good place to get into environmental politics.
• All members of congress employ an environmental legislative assistant.
• You can work on sustainability inside corporations. Look for positions as Corporate Responsibility Officers or Sustainability Officers.
Republicans for Environmental Protection is an organization dedicate to restoring the GOP's great conservation legacy. Rob cites several environmental Republican presidents who established milestones in our nation. Abraham Lincoln protected Yosemite. Ulysses S. Grant created Yellowstone, the first national park. Theodore Roosevelt championed conservation by designating 150 National Forests and five national parks. Even conservative icon Ronald Reagan ratified the Montreal Protocol to protect the Ozone Layer. Rob's expertise is in Republican environmental politics but his advice could just as easily translate to the Democratic Party. While any college major can lead to a career in politics, law degrees are very common and any classes in environmental science would also be helpful. Look for entry level positions as political staffers, at think tanks, or in foundations.
MICA ODOM
National Energy Media Director
Environmental Defense Fund
• Mica attended Columbia Business School and concentrated in Social Enterprise. Look to Ivy League MBA programs for business training in sustainable energy.
• Internships, even unpaid, or other networking opportunities are the key to getting your foot in the door in green and environmental industries.
• MBA and business students should look to Net Impact for networking opportunities in green and environmental industries. Net Impact has chapters on most campuses in many cities, and the web site includes a jobs page.
Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), a leading national nonprofit organization, creates transformational solutions to the most serious environmental problems. EDF links science, economics, law, and innovative private-sector partnerships. As National Energy Media Director for the Environmental Defense Fund, Mica Odom has insight into career success in green marketing. Mica points to the success of past EDF campaigns such as the 2007 landmark deal that canceled eight coal-fired power plants proposed in Texas and adopted an unprecedented set of environmental initiatives, preventing 57 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year.

Mica's career highlights the importance of business skills in the green and environmental industry. MBA programs in both the Ivy League and state schools are offering innovative programs that highlight green and environmental business training. The economic push from MBA students trained in sustainable business models is currently demonstrating the viability of green career fields such as engineering, green building, renewable energy finance, green marketing, and philanthropic foundations with an environmental focus.
