Welcome to the Earth5R Circular Economy Research Internship! We are thrilled to provide a platform where budding researchers can explore, innovate, and contribute to environmental sustainability. With climate-action initiatives in over 140 countries and a community of 100,000+ volunteers, Earth5R is committed to building the world’s largest network of eco-conscious citizens.
Here is a curated list of research topics from Circular Economy, designed to address the most pressing environmental challenges of our time—from climate change and waste management to community engagement and policy reform. Each topic is aligned with Earth5R’s mission and offers opportunities for real-world impact. The given set of topics also indicate the requisite level of complexity and depth for research; however, you are encouraged to select a subject that aligns with your personal interests and expertise.
Feel free to modify our suggested topics or come up with your own. We value innovation and encourage you to bring fresh perspectives to ongoing environmental dialogues.
We would also like to emphasize that the Earth5R Research Internship offers the flexibility of a work-from-home arrangement. This allows you to engage in meaningful research from the comfort of your own space, while contributing to the broader goals of sustainability and environmental stewardship.
