Climate Action Plan Steering Committee, Wicked Cool Ambassadors and Center for Arts and Culture Advisory Committee opportunities


  The Friends of the Malden River has applied to be a steering committee representative as a community organization. The Friends encourage you to reach out to engage your networks with this important endeavor for Malden and environmental justice communities to ensure that we install climate change solutions to protect people and the environment from climate change’s effects (equitable solutions for public safety and health, including protections against potential heat waves, flooding, air quality, lack of transportation, etc.).

  The first application is for the Climate Action Plan Steering Committee. This application will be open through December 31, 2022, and will help the City of Malden 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 representative needs to be a resident of Malden; the organization can be regional and have a stronghold in Malden. Emily Granoff (egranoff@cityofmalden.org) can answer questions or concerns. For the application and more info, access https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfkgshut94-00xRL08F1W0QYxZ2qx3wxSpyvhpN51_2bspRZQ/viewform

  The second application is for Ambassadors for the Wicked Cool Mystic project. These Ambassadors 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 31, 2022, and chosen volunteers will receive $1,000 stipends. This project is being conducted in partnership with the Mystic River Watershed Association. For the application and more info, accesshttps://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdfc81q0CbRSx5O25gcQmRbAfuuewnEVu6cv-s9waEhJ74DUA/viewform

  And the third exciting opportunity – Mayor Gary Christenson has announced the creation of the Malden Center for Arts and Culture Advisory Committee. The seven-member Committee will be a group of Malden residents who will, in partnership with the City of Malden, ensure that the redevelopment and future operations of the Malden Center for Arts and Culture remain consistent with the vision and values for the space established in the concept plan. The City is now soliciting applications from interested residents to serve on the Committee for a three-year term. To apply for the Malden Center for Arts and Culture Advisory Committee, please send a cover letter and resume to Senior Planner & Policy Manager Evan Spetrini at espetrini@cityofmalden.org. In your cover letter, be sure to state why you would like to serve on the Committee and what expertise you would bring to the group. Applications will be accepted until January 5, 2023. Candidates will be interviewed as a part of the selection process. For more information about the committee, access https://www.cityofmalden.org/civicalerts.aspx?AID=672
