Communications Lead – Project Neutral
MakeWay is a national charity and public foundation with a goal to enable nature and communities to thrive together. We do this by building partnerships, providing solutions, grants, and services for the charitable sector across the country.
MakeWay’s shared platform provides operational support, governance and charitable expertise for changemakers. Project Neutral operates as a project on MakeWay’s shared platform.
Project Neutral (projectneutral.org) is delivering a free carbon footprint calculator to households across Ontario. We aim to be the best carbon calculator with a focus on local emissions modelling and a host of climate friendly actions people can take. Our approach is unique in emphasizing our use in groups and sessions to reframe a carbon calculator as an engagement and climate education tool. This role will be heavily involved in developing a new offering to allow communities to plan and execute effective climate action projects.
Project Neutral is growing and tackling new projects, and central to our work is bringing climate awareness to diverse communities. As our Communications Lead, you will be pivotal in conveying our programs and offerings to diverse audiences in engaging and impactful ways using writing, design and videos. Beyond this you will be responsible for communicating with our users, fielding questions and “owning” our public-facing email account. More than simply dealing with incoming communications, a large portion of the role will be proactive and finding the right people and organizations to reach out to build relationships and share our work.
