We're Recruiting for our Programming Committee!
Posted on June 21, 2018
JOIN THE GREEN CALGARY PROGRAMMING COMMITTEE, AND HELP SHAPE THE FUTURE OF ENVIRONMENT AND CLIMATE LITERACY IN OUR CITY
Green Calgary Association is an award winning charity that has been serving our city since 1978. We exist to help Calgarians better understand their impact on the environment and on climate, and then take action on the things that matter the most to them. We interface with 50,000 Calgarians each year through literacy programs, and operate a small social enterprise where we sell environmental solutions like rain barrels, composters, reusable straws and bags, and more.
Our most successful programs have always come from a place of community consultation and consideration. Our Environment and Climate Literacy Program, which was awarded an Alberta Emerald Award in June 2018, was crafted after feedback was received from the community about the issues that matter the most to Calgarians. Built from the ground up to add value and expand on existing conversations while filling critical knowledge gaps, the program is attracting experts, audiences, and funding partners.
Our Programming Committee, new for 2018, adds value to Green Calgary Association’s environment and climate literacy programs by supporting and contributing to operational and strategic projects. This group will influence and evaluate programming that will be delivered to audiences in schools, workspaces, community centres, churches, and a variety of other spaces in our city.
We are seeking applicants to join this committee.
Our ideal member is an engaged Calgarian who spends most of their time in the city. You have an understanding of our urban environment, even if you are not the expert on all urban environmental topics. You have a background in program development and/or evaluation – whether through other non-profit work, corporate professional development streams, or conventional learning spaces. And you have time to volunteer – this group meets quarterly, and each member will take on operational projects to support the growth of Calgary’s leading environment and climate literacy programs.
To express your interest in joining, please send your CV along with a letter describing your connection to Green Calgary’s mission to firstname.lastname@example.org
We're also recruiting for our Fundraising Committee.
