City of St Louis Mayor's Office- St Louis, MO

Major: Environmental Studies

In January 2013, the City of St. Louis adopted its first Sustainability Plan, outlining specific objectives and strategies to advance sustainability in the City. As a Sustainability Intern, I worked in the Office of the Mayor on furthering a number of the initiatives drawn up in the Plan and the Mayor’s Sustainability Action Agenda. My internship responsibilities included developing the early stages of the first Mayor’s Community Council on Sustainability Implementation, and planning the City of St. Louis Sustainability Summit III :: implement, set to be held in November 2013. Additionally, I oversaw website updates, assisted in the creation of the City’s Sustainability Newsletter, and facilitated in the management of number of city-wide community development projects.
