Learning Experience with Pay!

would be knowledgeable about environmental issues (especially renewable energy and environmental justice), able to articulate their connection to faith concerns in an interfaith context, self-directed, organized, with good communication skills.  Tasks include
communication with congregations, networking, event organizing, and education.  This year, a significant network of concerned clergy and lay leaders in congregations throughout the area has been built up, connections have been made with renewable energy vendors who work with the congregations, fundraisers have been held selling fluorescent lightbulbs, and education sessions have informed people about the
connections between faith and environmental stewardship and the benefits of renewable energy.  There is plenty of room for a motivated person to continue this work or expand it in any of a number of directions (retreats for leaders, greater presence at local events,
etc.).  Anticipated start in September or possibly earlier. Interested?  Contact Andrea Cohen-Kiener at andrea@irejn.org or 860- 231-8554.
