Our society is on an endless quest for growth. From the largest corporations to the smallest non-profits, there’s a shared goal of improving the status quo (though the definition of what that means varies widely). But for every problem that growth solves, it seems to unearth a new challenge. There is a constant tradeoff between the speed of growth and control–the faster something grows, the less control you have over it. Sometimes it’s easier to grow fast and clean up the mess later, but that’s rarely the case when it comes to infrastructure. Smart Growth America is a Washington, DC based non-profit organization that believes “smart growth solutions support thriving businesses and jobs, provide more options for how people get around and make it more affordable to live near work and the grocery store.” They’re willing to sacrifice a little speed for more control because they see the long-term benefits of well planned communities.
Believe it or not, “Smart Growth America is the only national organization dedicated to researching, advocating for and leading coalitions to bring smart growth practices to more communities nationwide.” They push for smart growth through a variety of programs including Governors’ Institute on Design, a Leadership Institute, Transportation for America, and National Brownfields Coalition. Smart Growth America also publishes research and guides on a variety of relevant topics and does a lot of advocacy/policy work. They seem like a really interesting organization, which is why you should take a look at their Careers page. Right now they’re looking for a Communications Fellow and a Policy, Government Affairs and Outreach Fellow. These are paid 6-12 month positions that fall somewhere between an internship and a job, so check them out.
