The Greenovate Fellow will help our team connect community members to climate action, keep Bostonians up-to-date with the City’s climate work, and foster a sense of connectedness amongst our City’s many driven grassroots environmental organizations.
It’s been an exciting year for Greenovate: we held our tenth annual Greenovate Awards at Fenway Park, shared projections for how climate change will impact our city with community members, and have heard from hundreds of Bostonians at community events, in their communities, and through our online communications. As the Greenovate community grows, and the issue of climate change becomes ever more urgent, we’re excited to bring a Fellow on board to help us carry out our mission.
The Fellow’s primary responsibility will be to inspire climate action in the Boston community through the power of writing. They will build a writing portfolio of online content that features the climate and sustainability stories of the City of Boston, its partners, and community leaders. They will play an integral role in implementing our content strategy and drive a website content refresh project, with the support of the Greenovate Boston Program Manager.
The Fellowship is designed to challenge a local individual to strengthen their communications skills, learn about the City of Boston’s climate and sustainability work, and contribute to a community engagement initiative. The Fellowship is an excellent opportunity for this individual to gain familiarity with the work that community members and local organizations are doing to combat climate change and make their neighborhoods more resilient.
This Fellowship is a full-time contracted position starting mid-October until December 31, 2016, with the possibility of extension through June 2017. Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis until October 7th at 5pm. The ideal candidate will be a resident of Boston. The Greenovate team is committed to assembling a diverse, broadly trained staff. Women, people of color, queerfolk, people with disabilities, and veterans are strongly encouraged to apply.
