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; three of our outstanding youth leaders are featured in this year’s report. We revised our Education project, Minnesota’s Changing Climate, based on educator feedback, which received an award for our partnership-based approach. 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 energy literacy 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 supporting a new mentorship program for 10 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.
