Global Green's experience has shown that it is crucial that plans and improvements fully integrate local context, perspectives, and knowledge.Therefore, cities should utilize a combination of technical expertise and local stakeholder engagement strategies to respond to these resilience issues at the neighborhood level.
For more detail on this program, and the work in 30 cities nationally thus far, please see here:
We're seeking to bring this program to the Dallas, Texas metro area or nearby, and to convene stakeholders to discuss potential programs. We're seeking help from 2-3 volunteers to explore if the program could work in their neighborhood and/or provide up front research on what neighborhood level government agencies or organizations might be a good fit for the program, including for their own neighborhoods!
We're seeking help from volunteers with experience in research, communications and/or media - or who are deeply rooted in their local companies and seek to help build a program. As a new component to the program, we're also seeking to work with individuals who are seeking to bring the program to their neighborhood.
The volunteer will receive the opportunity to:
- Meet the Global Green and international Green Cross team
- Help inform the neighborhood sustainability program and explore opportunities in their own neighborhood
- Engage EarthX attendees regarding neighborhood sustainability
Here's more on the EarthX event and Global Green's participation last year:
Volunteers will have an initial phone call with Global Green staff, and then meet in person in Dallas the weekend of April 27-28.
