Solar Resiliency for Community Centers

Global Green is seeking help from a professional volunteer with a background in project management and/or research to a) conduct a literature and web review of existing "sustainable neighborhood" initiatives in Texas and b) identify what resources are available for neighborhoods to implement projects in areas such as energy, water, transit and waste. The Resilient Neighborhood Initiative is addressing a disadvantaged communities’ ability to rebuild once being devastated by climate change. This initiative will bring technical assistance to four cities in order to improve their resilience when facing the impacts of climate change. The collaboration is creating models of adaptation and acclimation to improve community health and resilience, and builds on prior work funded by US EPA in 30 cities that assisted building over 30 projects and $280 million in funding. Global Green is re-booting this project and starting with the next set of 4 neighborhoods. Here's more background on our work nationally:
