Apply to the Resilient Roots Climate Leaders Network Fellowship Program

Resilient Roots: Climate Leaders Network is a climate education program led by Greenbelt Alliance and Sustainable Solano that will equip 25 Suisun City and Fairfield residents with the inspiration and resources to champion climate action in their own communities. Throughout the 10 month course beginning in September 2024, participants will engage in skill-building workshops and field trips throughout the region, dedicating approximately 5 hours per month to the program. The curriculum will hone local expertise to develop an understanding of interconnected climate challenges, planning and policy development skills, and the tools for participants to lead local action and grow their climate leadership in their own communities!

This project will meaningfully address gaps in public awareness and capacity by supporting residents in becoming advocates and bringing their own expertise into all types of planning, restoration, and development projects and policies.

Resilient Roots will culminate in a fun-filled, impactful showcase event to celebrate the work of the program participants and launch a digital resource for other communities to learn from our findings.

Get Involved:

We are looking for adult and youth community leaders over the age of 14 who live or work in Fairfield or Suisun City to join the learning exchange program! Participants will receive a stipend of $1,000 for participating in 10 sessions over 10 months for roughly 5 hours per month, in addition to food and refreshments at all sessions.
