Internship / volunteer opportunity

I am excited to announce a new internship/volunteer opportunity to help build Kindling’s Timeline of Human Genius.

The Timeline catalogs milestones in humanity’s evolution – from the first fire to cities to space stations and beyond. You can filter the hundreds of Timeline entries by era, country, topic, and more. The Timeline helps us remember the incredible ingenuity and determination it has taken to get where we are now and imagine what the future might hold for us.



While at present each Timeline entry is simply a link to another website, the intern/volunteer will write short, original articles that live on the Kindling website. This will help frame each milestone within the context of humanity’s evolution and boost traffic to Kindling, deepening our impact.
Do you know anyone who might interested in writing for Kindling?

You can support Kindling by becoming a patron. 100% of your donation will get invested right back into finding and spreading good news from around the world.

All patrons get access to a live draft of my upcoming book Genius!: A Story of Humanity's Ever-Evolving Beauty, which I update every week.

Peter Schulte is the founder and editor of Kindling. Peter is also Senior Digital Engagement Associate for the Pacific Institute and the UN Global Compact's CEO Water Mandate, connecting businesses to sustainable water practices. Peter holds a B.S. in Conservation and Resource Studies and a B.A. in Comparative Literature from University of California, Berkeley, and an M.B.A. in Sustainable Systems from Pinchot University.
