St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter is asking environmentally-minded community members to serve on the city’s Climate Justice Advisory Board.
With an eye toward communities of color, the board will support the creation of new policies and programs informed by the city’s Climate Action and Resilience Plan.
The goal is to ensure activities related to clean energy, energy efficiency, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and climate resilience are equitably distributed.
The board will span 13 to 17 members, including at least one member from each of the seven wards. Seats are also reserved for youth, business, construction trades and academia.
Applications received by Aug. 31 will receive priority. Apply at stpaul.gov/boards.
