Most Recent Audit
This year we focused our activities locally and regionally. We advanced our climate and clean air policies through public outreach and collaboration with decision-makers. We expanded our youth climate leadership network. We updated our curriculum suite to support the new Next Generation Science Standards and reached 800 educators through our professional development offerings. We have also been supported with increasingly diverse revenue streams.
Current Goals
We plan to enhance our climate change education program with new resources on climate change and energy that trains teachers and educates students about the importance of energy efficiency, conservation and the need to transition away from fossil fuels with renewable energy. We will continue to support youth climate leadership across the Midwest, while also expanding a mentorship program for 20 youth and nonprofit leaders. Finally, we will continue to provide authentic eyewitness accounts of climate change as a platform for furthering education, civic engagement and influencing public policy, with a focus on Minnesota’s clean energy leadership by working directly with Governor Dayton.
