City of San José
San Jose, CA, USA
Climate Smart San José , adopted by the City Council in 2018, is a communitywide initiative to reduce air pollution, save water and improve quality of life. Climate Smart San José is one of the nation’s first detailed city plans for reaching the targets of the international Paris Agreement to reduce climate pollution. To get there, Climate Smart sets ambitious goals for energy, water, transportation and local jobs.
In October 2018, San José was selected as one of 25 cities for the Bloomberg Philanthropies’ American Cities Climate Challenge . San José has used support from the Climate Challenge to turbocharge the implementation of Climate Smart San José. Specifically, San José has worked with Climate Challenge partners to develop and implement a shared electric-vehicle strategy, implement high-priority segments for the City’s walking and bicycling network; increase new mobility options such as bike- and scooter-sharing; develop a roadmap to eliminate natural gas use in housing; and require newer buildings to be all-electric, as well as ready to install solar power and electric-vehicle charging.
The fellow will report to the city’s Climate Advisor within the Sustainability and Compliance Division (SCD) of the Environmental Services Department. SCD brings together professional staff involved with establishing environmental policies and programs; implementing health, safety and compliance activities; advancing clean energy technology; and integrating green practices into City and community activities.
The fellow will also be a part of an interdepartmental team of sustainability professionals, including staff from various departments: Environmental Services, Housing, Transportation, Community Energy, (also known as San José Clean Energy), and community partners such as Mothers Out Front.
The fellow will assist City staff in advancing equity work primarily by:
Developing a common understanding of the environmental burdens that underrepresented and minority communities face
Enhancing existing relationships and establishing new relationships with community-based organizations serving underserved and underrepresented communities; and
Using equity best practices to help develop a climate equity narrative, which will include recommendations on how to improve community engagement practices with underrepresented communities, and how these practices and research can inform our sustainability policies.
The fellow will advance this work through three projects:
Equity Best Practices: Building on existing fellows’ work, the fellow will interview regional municipal partners from the Urban Sustainability Directors Network (USDN) and the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE) to learn how other cities have incorporated equity into their climate action planning and community engagement projects. The fellow will compile lessons learned and recommendations from those partners and present them to the Climate Smart team.
Assessment of Existing Community Engagement Initiatives: The fellow will also conduct interviews and survey community organizations including Vietnamese Voluntary Foundation (VIVO), Veggielution, Latinos United for a New America (LUNA), Sacred Heart, SOMOS Mayfair in order to identify: each community’s top priorities and evolving needs especially amid COVID; new opportunities to communicate and engage community members while distancing, using different channels, and social media platforms; and, best practices and gaps in engagement with low-income and minority communities.
The fellow will produce a report detailing recommendations and present them to the Climate Smart team.
Climate Equity Narrative Development: The fellow will gather qualitative and quantitative data and information (e.g. demographic data, redlining, Superfund sites, interviews, community meetings etc.) into a narrative on the inequities that underrepresented and minority communities face, specifically as it relates to Climate Smart San José. This narrative will assist City staff and community partners in developing a common understanding of San José’s environmental disparities and work towards the goal of environmental justice. Based on these findings, the fellow will assist City staff to develop a strategic planning process for implementing racial equity goals in various programs supporting Climate Smart San José and the Bloomberg Philanthropies’ American Cities Climate Challenge.
