The Toronto Environmental Alliance is seeking a Campaigner to lead our climate change campaigns and projects.
Position: Climate Change Campaigner
Type: full-time permanent
Organization: Toronto Environmental Alliance
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Who We Are:
The Toronto Environmental Alliance (TEA) is a non-profit organization founded in 1988. TEA envisions Toronto as a green, healthy, and equitable city with economic activity that sustains our environment. We inspire, innovate and advocate to build a greener Toronto for all.
TEA is recognized Canada-wide for our municipal work on climate change, waste and toxics reduction, and other issues we believe are critical to the health and well-being of Toronto residents. The key to our past and future successes is our multi-sectoral collaborations with concerned individuals and workers, grassroots organizations, businesses, professional associations, and elected officials.
We are fiercely non-partisan and will work with any decision-maker who wants to build a greener city for all. As a non-profit organization that is not a charity, we are able to pursue our advocacy work without any legal restrictions related to charitable status.
TEA is looking for a campaigner who is passionate about environmental issues and engaging the public. We want someone who understands how change happens politically and socially, and how to design, develop and run campaigns and initiatives that will make a real difference to communities.
TEA’s campaigners are strategic thinkers who can work with City Councillors and staff to develop solutions, speak to the media, and mobilize public support for action on Toronto’s top environmental issues. They see how researching best practices, amplifying success stories and pilot testing techniques and solutions can accelerate local climate action. They understand the importance of engaging people where they live and want to build power at the local level to strengthen civic engagement and build a greener city for all.
Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time and the clock is ticking. Toronto has a solid climate action plan to tackle our city’s major sources of emissions including buildings, transportation and waste, but without the political will to act and widespread public support, the best laid plans can gather dust on a shelf. TEA is dedicated to making sure Toronto implements climate action strategies that are effective at reducing emissions, realize social and economic benefits and serve frontline communities facing the greatest impacts from climate change and pollution.
We are looking for a motivated organizer who wants to be part of a fun and dedicated team at a lean and effective organization.
The Campaigner will be responsible for campaign and project activities on select issues, which includes:
