CCSR Energy & Water Efficiency Coordinator
The City & County of Honolulu's Office of Climate Change, Sustainability & Resiliency (CCSR), in partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service, seeks a sustainability-minded AmeriCorps VISTA to fight poverty and empower our community by creating a more sustainable and resilient O‘ahu, through empowerment, efficiency, and mitigation and adaptation of the effects caused by climate change. This VISTA member will be assigned to work on energy and water efficiency, in the household, in transportation, and for health and preparedness in the face of climate-enhanced hazards and events. This VISTA will team with three other VISTA members working on 1) climate action planning, 2) external partnerships and network mapping, and 3) affordable housing. All of these VISTA positions will work together to build social infrastructure, expand community partnerships, and secure long-term resources, which will create pathways for economic and social resilience for low-income communities, moving them out of poverty. Through this program, CCSR intends to positively impact low-income communities across the Island of O‘ahu. Collectively, the VISTAs will accomplish this work by delivering climate change solutions and efficiency measures that can reduce Hawai‘i’s high cost of living, linking complementary efforts, and directly assisting vulnerable communities in need of housing and community preparedness assistance.
