Volunteers for Toronto BEC

Join the Movement for a Sustainable Toronto

Are you passionate aboutmaking a difference in your community? Would you like to volunteer some free time to make Toronto more sustainable?

Work Environment: Remote

Biosphere Eco-Cities Canada (BECC) is seeking four or five volunteers, to dedicate 3-4 hours a week

to develop a Database of Sustainability Projects for the city. This will be maintained on the Toronto Biosphere Eco-City (TBEC) website, which is under development. The database will allow residents to have an overview of current sustainability projects in their city. This will help them understand more about Toronto’s sustainability activities, find what interests them, and even contact managers for more information.


A Biosphere Eco-City (BEC) includes an urban core and the surrounding countryside. It uses simple

Themes and Tools to engage people and develop a culture of sustainability in a city. BEC’s 10 Tools of Sustainability - Transportation, Energy, Design, Habitat, Food, Natural Capital, Waste, Health, Recreation, and Sense of Place -represent all areas of direct action for sustainability. They serve as a framework for the database. BECC is a national charity that supports development of BECs. Currently there are five BEC initiatives in Canada - Ottawa, Toronto, Brampton, Edmonton, and Vancouver. For more information on the program visit https://BioEcoCity.org.

You may also visit https://Edmonton.BioEcoCity.org for an example of a developing Database of

Sustainability Projects. If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, please send your resume or questions to masuma.roushan@gmail.com

We can arrange an online interview at a time convenient to you.
