[ARCHIVED] Malden Opens Applications for Resident Roles in City Climate Projects

Green Malden

Mayor Gary Christenson is pleased to announce the opening of applications for two opportunities for residents to engage in Malden’s ongoing work to address the impacts of climate change in our city.

The first is for the Climate Action Plan Steering Committee. This application will be open from today through December 12th and will help the City select seven residents to lead the Climate Action Plan’s community engagement phase. The City is particularly seeking residents who can volunteer to serve as liaisons with community organizations, to help expand the reach of these efforts and create a greater sense of community ownership of the plan. Individual volunteers will receive a $600 stipend, and organizations with a representative member on the Committee will receive a $500 donation.

The second is for resident ambassadors on the Wicked Cool Mystic project, who will help educate their neighbors and community members about urban heat island impacts, help lead various meetings and educational events, and help design outdoor cooling solutions. This application is open through December 31st, and chosen volunteers will receive $1,000 stipends. This project is being conducted in partnership with the Mystic River Watershed Association.

Both positions include stipends for chosen volunteers and are scheduled to start in January. Residents are welcome to apply for both opportunities, and the City plans to conduct the projects in close coordination with one another.

“This is an important step forward in Malden’s efforts to battle climate change,” said Mayor Gary Christenson. “Getting the right team in place to lead our efforts will be essential for preparing our community for the extreme weather we’re going to see in the coming decades.”

“I look forward to working closely with the residents selected for these positions,” said Carey McDonald, City Councillor At-Large and Chair of the Energy Efficiency and Sustainability Committee. “The people who volunteer to take on these responsibilities will be essential partners in making sure that our work is focused on environmental justice and equity from start to finish.”

All interested residents are encouraged to apply to these opportunities, and anyone with questions are welcome to reach out to the City at greenmalden@cityofmalden.org. More information about the stipends and responsibilities can be found at the application links. These projects are being managed by Malden’s Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development in partnership with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council and Mystic River Watershed Association.
