Oct. 1 Reducing Energy Bills in Older Buildings with Limited Budgets Workshop

When: Saturday, Oct. 1, 2011

Where: First Church at 11 Garden St., Cambridge MA

Marc Rosenbaum, Award-winning Building Systems Analyst, will be speaking at this hands-on case study, which will teach participants how to develop realistic long-term plans to bring older buildings into the 21st century while considering limited budgets, mixed uses, moisture, ventilation, and preservation. Energy efficiency incentives and innovative fundraising/financing options will be explained.  This workshop is set within historic First Church of Cambridge for hands-on learning and team-work, not just lecture.

The instructor, Marc Rosenbaum, is widely respected as a great presenter who really knows how to make buildings work better. It’s common for over 100 people to pay $225 or more for single-day workshop to learn from Marc; at $75 this is a great deal for a great cause.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Climate Action Plan Intern, Office of Energy and Environment Intern (Medford, MA)


The City of Medford is seeking an intern to work on a status update of its 2001 Climate Action Plan. Office of Energy & Environment has a full time Director and a part time Energy Efficiency Coordinator. The Office handles all environmental issues, energy and efficiency programs for the City. The 2001 Climate Action Plan sited energy usage statistics and numerical goals for the city to meet by 2010. The intern would be responsible for confirming the sources of the original numbers and determining the 2010 energy usage of the city within the past year. The intern would then produce verbiage, graphs and charts as a report on the 2001 Climate Action Plan. The second stage of this project is to look at projects that were proposed in the Plan to reduce energy usage and develop a brief written report on the state of these projects. Minor office assistance, such as answering the phone and talking to walk-ins is included.

Apply to be a C2C Fellow (Annandale-on-Hudson, NY)

C2C Fellows is a national network for undergraduates and recent graduates aspiring to sustainability leadership in politics and business.

C2C Fellows will engage 300 students each year in intensive leadership training. We will challenge young people to consider: What skills and experiences are needed to become people of power, people with the ability to affect the future, within five to ten years? C2C will then support the Fellows to gain these skills. The US Constitution empowers citizens at age 25 to become members of Congress. Yet few young people even imagine pursuing this opportunity. More students have been inspired by young business entrepreneurs. Yet few develop the leadership skills needed to launch a green business.


Apply now to attend our launch workshop on 12/4 and join the C2C Fellowship, or sign up to stay informed about C2C Fellows.
