BECOME A GREENOVATE BOSTON LEADER
Greenovate Boston is Mayor Walsh’s initiative to get all Bostonians involved in eliminating the pollution that causes global climate change, while continuing to make Boston a healthy, thriving, and innovative city. Greenovate Boston offers a number of ways to get involved, from volunteering, to joining programs and events, to applying for climate leadership positions.
The Greenovate Boston Leaders Program aims to increase Bostonians’ understanding of the climate impacts in Boston and the actions required to mitigate the impacts. We want to involve you as part of the collective action needed in advancing citywide climate action initiatives. The Leaders program gives you the materials and support you need to lead and collaborate with your community on climate action.
Following a successful pilot in 2018-2019, BPS will offer Greenovate Boston Youth Leaders trainings at interested BPS high schools and middle schools during the 2019-2020 academic year, putting the emphasis on youth leadership and agency. Please contact Katherine Walsh, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information about this opportunity.
