Preparing for climate change

Climate Ready Boston is our initiative to get the City ready for the long-term impacts of climate change.

Boston residents are already affected by extreme heat, rain, snow and flooding. These trends will only continue. The City launched Climate Ready Boston to help Boston plan for the impacts of climate change and build a resilient future. 

Climate Ready Boston is an ongoing initiative. We work with the community and other partners to advance our vision for a Climate Ready Boston.

Fellowship opportunities

We're seeking spring and summer Resilience Fellows. This is a great opportunity to gain experience and learn about urban climate adaptation. You will contribute to protecting Boston and the broader region from the impacts of climate change.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis through January 15 for the spring and through March 15 for the summer. Please read out Climate Ready Boston Fellowship Opportunities document for more information on the available positions, and how to apply.
