Sustainability Fellowship, City of Somerville (Somerville, MA)

Sustainability Fellowship, Climate Action Outreach, City of Somerville, Office of Sustainability and Environment (Somerville, MA)

The City of Somerville is in the process of completing its first comprehensive climate change plan called Somerville Climate Forward, which will identify projects, programs, and policies to advance climate change resilience and to work towards carbon neutrality by 2050. Many of the programs and policies identified in Somerville Climate Forward will require public engagement and participation to be successful. The UNH Sustainability Fellow will take one or more of the recommendations from Somerville Climate Forward and develop the outreach strategy and materials to implement the chosen program. Depending on the fellow’s skills, outreach materials could include videos, informational pamphlets, posters, infographics, written communication (letters, emails, social media posts), graphics, and/or webpage content. The exact solution(s) of focus will be chosen later this spring when Somerville Climate Forward’s solutions are more developed. Examples of what the project might focus on include tree planting and maintenance guidance for private property owners, actions that homeowners or renters can take to address climate change at different price points (low to high cost actions), stormwater management best practices, or electrical vehicle adoption. The Fellow will be invited to review solutions and help decide on the focus of the project during the work plan development process.

This is a two-year program, expressly designed to prepare future leaders with U.S. PIRG. We look for smarts, leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills, and an eagerness to learn. We value experience organizing, including building campus groups.
