In the Spring of 2016 the Young Leaders in the Green Movement hosted a Lunch & Learn with Council Member Lisa Herbold. The Lunch & Learn was a venue for the Young Leaders to speak to community members and council members about the importance of the Young Leader’s Green Pathways campaign. A campaign that calls on the creation of more internships opportunities,
- That are good for the environment and our communities at the same time.
- That have a racial equity lens in their outreach and ways to retain participants. This includes paying a living wage.
- Have systems in place to help young adults move into career pathways
Now the Young Leaders in the Green Movement have partnered with Council Member Mike O’Brien and Council Member Lisa Herbold to write a resolution to ask the city of Seattle to follow the tenants of the Green Pathways Campaign.
Council Member Lisa Herbold’s Civil Rights, Utilities, and Economic Development & Arts Committee Meeting will be on Tuesday, August 9 at 9:30 a.m.- 10:30 a.m. in City Hall – Council Chambers (600 4th Ave. Seattle, WA 98122).
