Please join us at the upcoming 2019 Climate and Energy Advocacy Trainingpresented by the Massachusetts Sierra Club and Mass Power Forward Coalition.  This training will provide a valuable update on clean energy, climate, and environmental justice priorities for this legislative session and share action steps and tools you can use to help move these priorities forward. You’ll hear from Sierra Club trainers and local environmental leaders.

This training will:

  • outline key legislation to expand renewable energy and reduce climate pollution in Massachusetts
  • explain why equity and environmental justice matter and how they are central to the Mass Power Forward Coalition’s climate agenda
  • share action steps you can take and tools to prepare you to engage effectively with state and local officials
  • answer your questions about the clean energy landscape in our state.

Join us for this informative evening and let’s come together to make real progress on a just clean energy transition in our communities and across Massachusetts.  No prior experience required!

Jessica Langerman, one of Sustainable Wellesley’s leaders, is pursuing a full-time position with Citizens Climate Lobby. Thank you Jessica for all you have done to engage the residents, businesses, and the Town of Wellesley in the actions required for sustainability.

This leaves a place for YOU

Although we will miss her energy, ideas, cheerfulness, and constructive can-do-spirit, we are delighted that she is going into such a significant role. If Sustainable Wellesley had any part in her transition, and we can keep producing such committed climate folks, we would be thrilled.

With other former Sustainable Wellesley leaders such as Molly Fairchild, Katy Gibson and Mary Gard in a variety of key places within our community, our network and influence is only growing.

Jessica, we wish you continued success.

Thus, Sustainable Wellesley seeks a leadership team member. 

We all have many different backgrounds, timetables and shoelaces (just checking to see if you are still reading), but feel moved to engage OUR community = the residents, businesses, and the Town of Wellesley in the actions required for sustainability.

We host events, write stories for local media and our website, research and promote causes beyond our borders, share knowledge about everything from light bulbs, to fracking, greening parties and much more.

We have a one hour weekly conference call, but tend to share ideas and manage initiatives via email from near and far.

We promise insightful, meaningful and fun interactions.
