Greenovate Boston Fellowship

Posted July 26, 2012 Employer: City of Boston
Approximate Deadline: September

In April 2012, Mayor Thomas Menino launched Greenovate Boston, a brand and campaign that will unify the city’s drive toward sustainability, including a 25-percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. The Greenovate Boston Fellowship Program will link imaginative, energetic proponents of urban sustainability with opportunities for expanding sustainability in the Boston community. Fellows will report to the Mayor and the Chief of Environment and Energy, who oversees the City’s sustainability programs, and interact with all segments of the Boston community.

Two Greenovate Boston Fellows will be chosen to act as champions for the city by:

Creating innovative entrepreneurial environmental policy

Increasing personal, corporate, and institutional participation in Greenovate Boston

Expanding Greenovate Boston’s presence in social and traditional media

Supporting management of the Greenovate Boston brand

Supporting development of performance measures for sustainability and making them widely available

Developing campaigns to reach critical sectors to maximize participation in the City’s energy efficiency and renewable energy programs

Identifying and reducing obstacles to increased participation or individual success

The application deadline is September 7, 2012.  Completed applications and requests for additional information should be sent to: Patricia Boyle-McKenna
