Climate Forward Ambassador, City of Somerville (Somerville, MA)

The Somerville Office of Sustainability and Environment’s (OSE) Climate Forward Ambassador program started in the spring of 2019 and is designed to educate a diverse group of Somerville residents about climate change. The goal is to increase the Somerville community’s capacity to engage in climate action. You don’t need any prior knowledge about climate change to participate—in fact, the ideal group will have a range of knowledge on this topic. Any Somerville resident, high school age or older, is eligible to apply.

Ambassador, City of Boston Environment Department (Boston, MA)

Ambassadors focus on equitable community engagement for climate action. Ambassadors organize and facilitate the Community Leaders program, leading actions in the five Greenovate vision areas (Mobile, Prepared, Connected, Smart Energy, and Zero Waste). Ambassadors also serve in an advisory role in the considerations and integration of equity into the department’s work and socially vulnerable populations-specific programming, breaking down barriers that have historically prevented Boston’s most vulnerable populations from engaging in climate action.
