& Past Green Schools Quest Mentor
Maurice K. Muia currently serves as the Climate Advisor for the City of St. Louis where he advises the City on sustainable building policy and transportation electrification. He was instrumental in the passing of a historic Solar Ready ordinance for new construction in the City of St. Louis. Prior to his current role, he was an electrical power system engineer with electric utilities across the State of Missouri. In 2009, he met with Delegate to Congress Dr. Christensen to discuss opportunities for sustainability in island nations for the U.S. Virgin Islands. Additionally, he was a Sustainability Commissioner for the City of Maplewood where he worked on Sustainability and Climate Change challenges at the local level. He believes sustainability and climate change are one of the biggest issues facing our local community and nation. From his perspective, the three most important issues before the City and its residents are the following: safety, youth engagement, and continuity. Engaging our youth in careers and opportunities of the future outside of school should create a better environment for our children and families.
