The Institute for Sustainable Communities (ISC) regularly has positions open worldwide, so Revitalization News provides this ongoing link to available jobs. Their headquarters is in Montpelier, Vermont.
ISC’s mission is to help communities around the world address environmental, economic, and social challenges to build a better future shaped and shared by all.
They are in the business of unleashing the power of people to transform their communities. Their approach ensures solutions emerge from within the community, rather than being imposed from the outside. By combining technical expertise and leadership training with strategic investments in local organizations, they are sparking creative solutions and lasting change.
Since their founding in 1991 by former Vermont Governor Madeleine M. Kunin, ISC has led transformative community-driven projects across the globe. They garnered early recognition for connecting civic participation with environmental problem solving, and over the years we have developed an approach that accelerates a community’s ability to meet challenges head on.
ISC believes that sustainable communities are possible. They believe that climate change demands that communities must transform, engaging their citizens, reorienting their institutions and shifting their resources and investments. ISC is working to catalyze change in cities, and to advance sustainable manufacturing in developing countries – targeting critical sources of climate pollution and reducing the very real risks of growth.
