I have the good fortune of being involved with a very exciting sustainability project in Oberlin Ohio called the Oberlin Project. It is spearheaded by environmentalist David Orr, and supported at the highest levels of city and college government.  The goal is to do "full-spectrum sustainability," and make Oberlin, OH a model post-carbon community.  The Project currently seeks a Managing Director.  Please take a moment to review the job annoucement (below), and reflect on whether you or someone you know might be a good fit for this position.  I am happy to answer questions people might have about the position and the project.


Oberlin College invites applications for the position of Managing Director of The Oberlin Project (a partnership between the City of Oberlin and Oberlin College) to coordinate and integrate the planning, development and implementation of the Project’s Core Planning Teams. The Oberlin Project is a collaborative venture to build a prosperous post-fossil fuel based economy. Of the eighteen international cities in the Clinton Climate Positive Development Project, it is the only project that represents a model for a small city and college collaboration.  For more information, visit: http://new.oberlin.edu/home/jobs/jobs_detail.dot?id=2700827
