Community or Constituency Served
We recognize that youth will inherit the unparalleled impacts of climate change and are among our most powerful advocates. We also recognize that educators are critical messengers of climate and energy literacy, and schools and non-formal learning centers provide powerful examples of sustainability in communities. In addition, the Midwest is home to both significant carbon emissions and clean energy solutions, and is thus strategically positioned to build national momentum on climate change solutions.
With these factors guiding our approach, we are having a tangible impact on the issue of climate change.
Geographic Area Served
We serve the Twin Cities, Minnesota, and the Midwest primarily, though our programs have national and international reach.
