Resilient Cities and Communities Coalition

In 2020, the Alliance for Sustainability is supporting elected leaders, city staff, and citizen volunteers from 50+ MN cities to launch the Resilient Cities and Communities Coalition (RCCC) to work together to meet their community-wide energy, climate, and resiliency goals. Member cities will learn together, share best practices, and become successful, inspiring models for other cities throughout Minnesota and the United States. The RCCC will be a non-partisan group focusing on collaborative, win-win-win solutions addressing issues of health, equity, sustainability, and resiliency.

We are exploring long term ways we can sync up new resources being developed by the Met Council, GreenSteps, RCCC, Metro Counties and nonprofits to support and empower MN cities achieve their climate goals on time as a Regional Climate Collaborative (see the excellent summary) Regional Climate Collaboratives

Find out how you and your city can make a difference through more impactful collaboration, innovative programs, community engagement, and policy advocacy. Contact Sean Gosiewski, sean@afors.org.
