Application for the Environmentalist in Residence

General Description:

The Environmentalist in Residence (EnvIR) serves as a citizen expert in the area of grassroots action. They lead engaging, hands-on workshops and offer interactive sessions at London Public Library locations and/or online platforms. The EnvIR shares their knowledge and experience and inspires others to contribute in their own ways, however big or small, alone or with others. This is a "virtual" residency in the sense that the EnvIR does not occupy or take appointments in a physical space.

Requirements of the Environmentalist in Residency:

A four-week residency from April 1 to April 30, 2022. Expectations of time commitments vary each week and the work schedule is flexible, but the average commitment would be approximately 10 hours per week. This would include:

  • Attending planning meetings to prepare for the April 1st launch of the program.
  • Delivering four multi-generational programs at different library locations (or offered virtually).
  • Visiting two schools or community organizations (in-person or virtually).
  • Providing one written article and/or participating in an interview with Library Communications staff on an environmental topic of the EnvIR's choosing.
