   About the Position

Impact Statement
ClimateActionWR is a collaboration between local organizations and community members focused on climate change mitigation, and is led by Sustainable Waterloo Region and Reep Green Solutions. It coordinates the activities of Waterloo Region's community Climate Action Plan – to achieve our community's current greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction target of 6% below 2010 levels by 2020, and long-term target of 80% GHG reduction by 2050.

Description
ClimateActionWR is currently recruiting subject matter experts and passionate community members to join our Sector Committees. Sector committees take a ‘birds-eye’ view of their sector, being aware of initiatives related to climate change mitigation within the boundaries of Waterloo Region, to identify and accelerate progress toward achieving our community’s GHG reduction target.

Sector Committee Advisors are individuals with expertise related to a specific lens of sustainability and climate change mitigation, who will make themselves available to our sector committee members on a volunteer basis, for questions and to provide feedback on committee projects. This will occur on an as-needed basis throughout the April to December 2021 term.
