A Cool Davis Champion is a member of the community who enthusiastically promotes reduction of greenhouse gas emissions at the household level in Davis, California. The Champion may: * Participate in one-on-one communications, such as sharing relevant and positive personal stories with friends, family, and neighbors, is responsible for tracking conversations and answering questions. * Participate in small group conversations, such as providing materials at block parties, and helps with tracking success stories and other content from conversations. * Distribute outreach materials, such as door hangers, and track number of materials given. * As interested and able, help with transport and setup of displays, tents, banners, and booths for relevant events, including properly storing and maintaining equipment and materials. * Participate in digital communications, such as sending online messages on community platforms, and is responsible for tracking and reporting number of materials or messages distributed. * Collect contact information for those who wish to receive Cool Davis newsletters and participate in other Cool Davis activities.
Champions should be comfortable approaching, engaging, and speaking to the general public on a regular basis. Must be willing to conduct outreach at community events as well as public and private locations. Should possess interpersonal skills, social initiative, the ability to track and report metrics, the ability to apply communications strategies, and the ability to convey messages within campaign outreach materials. Familiarity with the Cool Davis mission and other local organizations is a plus!
Champions receive training on campaigns, community engagement, and community-based social marketing. If pertinent, the Champion may refer questions to Cool Davis staff or subject matter experts. Before or after training, Champions must be knowledgeable about Cool Davis campaigns and resources.
This is an unpaid volunteer role. Champions become part of a solution-based approach to climate change, gain recognition on social media, and receive Cool Davis swag (like t-shirts and buttons).
Specifics for Solar Champions:
Solar Champions needs to be knowledgeable about rooftop solar adoption, but do not necessarily need to have a rooftop solar system installed on their home. Solar Champions may be asked to promote other renewable energy solutions, such as opting up to Ultra Green with Valley Clean Energy.

About COOL DAVIS
PO BOX 4013, DAVIS, CA 95617, US
Our mission is to inspire our community to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, adapt to a changing climate, and improve the quality of life for all.
Cool Davis is an active network of residents, community organizations, businesses and community institutions committed to implementing the City of Davis' Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (D-CAAP). Davis’ goal is to achieve community level carbon neutrality by 2040. Cool Davis works with the City of Davis to achieve these goals and is specifically tasked with the community engagement portion of the D-CAAP. As a result we work primarily with households to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In order to help households make change we must engage all of the community and all of our creativity in the process. Cool Davis works with its 80+ partners to incorporate good food, laughter, music, art, poetry, dance, visual arts, and film in our work.
Since its founding, Cool Davis has engaged hundreds of households in active reduction of greenhouse gas emissions; hosted prominent public events including talks, workshops, bike rides, showcases, film screenings, and panels, presents annual Eco-Hero awards to dynamic change makers in our community, and has built a network of more than 80 partners. In 2013 they led the effort to become Cool California Coolest California City. In 2014 Cool Davis was awarded the regional Clean Air award.
We'll work with your schedule.
