Environment Now: Green Careers

Environment Now is a multi-lingual, multi-cultural grassroots outreach team that engages residents, businesses and the public in SF Environment’s community initiatives. Staff gain valuable environmental work experience in the public sector by conducting a variety of educational outreach campaigns throughout San Francisco. 

The Environment Now team works at the intersection of community engagement and behavior change. The team builds relationships with San Francisco residents and businesses to educate, inform and encourage participation in our City’s many ambitious environmental campaigns and initiatives. Members of the team cultivate and develop their environmental careers while performing public outreach activities including environmental assessments, door-to-door canvassing, and community presentations.

One of the major strengths of the Environment Now team is our ability to develop culturally competent messaging so that all San Franciscans have an access point to participate in our City’s environmental initiatives. Our multi-lingual, multi-cultural team strategically and thoughtfully communicates information across a wide variety of audiences and project areas including, Zero Waste, Energy Conservation and Efficiency, Toxics Reduction and Clean Transportation.
