Job Posting: Youth Engagement and Outreach Assistant, Climate Justice Project
The Climate Justice Project is a 5-year research and public engagement alliance led by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) and UBC. The project uses British Columbia as a case study to examine the social and economic implications of a serious and sustained effort to reduce greenhouse gases and adapt to climate change and to articulate policy options that are effective, equitable, and that have broad public support.
At its midway point, the project is now focused on engaging communities and individuals to contribute to a larger public discussion on climate change. In particular, the Climate Justice Project would like to bring young people into the conversation on climate justice, enhance young peoples’ knowledge about public policy processes, and increase their capacity for civic engagement. The “Engaging Youth in Climate Justice” initiative, led by the CCPA in partnership with Check Your Head and Gen Why Media, will organize youth-oriented workshops and dialogue events, develop multimedia tools based on CCPA research, popularize research reports, and disseminate these climate justice materials. To help implement these activities, the Climate Justice Project is hiring a Youth Engagement and Outreach Assistant.
