City Requests Proposals to Lead and Implement Inclusive Climate Mobilization Engagement
The City of Boulder is seeking a local consultant(s) to create and implement an inclusive engagement plan related to the 2020 Climate Mobilization Action Plan (CMAP) process.
“Community-driven and culturally competent engagement opportunities will be key to ensure the next generation of climate action in Boulder demonstrates a commitment to social equity and environmental justice,” said Engagement Manager Sarah Huntley. “Boulder is fortunate to have leaders and organizers who can help the city fulfill this vision.”
This effort will build on existing work that has been done in the past 18 months to improve outreach, engagement and capacity building with Boulder’s underserved and underrepresented constituents and communities, especially people of color and low incomes, and indigenous populations.
The Climate Initiatives Department is allocating $95,000 to an inclusive engagement fund to support this work in 2020 and anticipates splitting these funds for:
- Compensation for strategists and coordinators;
- Compensation for partner implementers; and
- Micro-grants to be awarded for implementation of community-generated projects
Applicants can submit online at www.bidnet.com/colorado. The deadline to submit is Feb. 19 at 4 p.m.
The City of Boulder has entered a new phase of climate action called the Climate Mobilization Action Plan (CMAP) in response to the climate emergency. This new phase of action will be community-centered and different from the city’s past efforts, placing particular focus on diverse communities. Working together, the city and the community will re-evaluate targets, identify new, impactful strategies and take innovative approaches to support climate justice.
