E3.20 Eco3 LNPK Innovation Zone Developer
Ecolibrium3's mission is to lead and inspire change in our community toward an equitable and sustainable future. We accomplish this mission through innovation, integration, and inspiration in three areas of focus. The first is serving as the neighborhood convening organization in Duluth’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, working on all aspects of sustainable revitalization that advances opportunities for residents and businesses. The second is a focus on community resilience including aspects of energy transition, housing stock improvement, economic security, and health. The third is bringing capacity to our community through the Eco3 VISTA program. We excel at understanding the high level challenges and then designing and implementing programs, partnerships, and projects that address those issues. Our work builds opportunities in our community through ongoing dedication, professionalism, and relationship building. We seek a VISTA member to assist with building programmatic capacity to improve an economically and environmentally challenged neighborhood where residents (pre-COVID-19) face significant health disparities- dying on average 20 years earlier than other ares of Duluth. The successful applicant will show passion for people and places, emphasize approaches to co-create with residents, and bring professional skills and curiousity. The VISTA member will be part of the Eco3 VISTA cohort serving in northeastern Minnesota. Although each member is serving in a unique position, all cohort members will participate in VISTA specific activities such as regular cohort meetings, collaborative projects, professional development opportunities, and trainings. Additionally, cohort members will jointly complete one community service project of their cooperative design. If you desire a future career in community-centered design and project implementation, this position is for you!
