WWF&C and Food Solutions New England (FSNE) have formed a joint regional policy program for New England to address climate change, biodiversity loss, and their mounting threats to human wellbeing and a healthy planet. Together, we are seeking a Policy Program Co-Director to advance our regional policy program centered on an integrated approach to conserving forests, farmland, and water while democratically transitioning forestry, farming, food, and fishery systems toward greater sustainability and resilience.
Newhallville is a one-square-mile residential New Haven neighborhood that is home to 7,000 residents and has no library, no grocery stores, no community center, and no medical services. Though it is separated from Yale University by just one street and sits next to the popular Farmington Canal trail, until a few years ago, the neighborhood had no park and not one place to sit outdoors. A lot has changed through the leadership and partnership of Doreen Akubakar, Founder and Director of CPEN (Community Place-making Engagement Network).
