October is Energy Awareness Month
At Climate Generation: A Will Steger Legacy our mission is to empower individuals and their communities to engage in solutions to climate change. Founded by polar explorer Will Steger in 2006 through his powerful eyewitness account of climate change from over 50 years of exploration in the Arctic regions. We work to build climate literacy, develop powerful advocates, and elevate leadership on climate change with educators, youth, and citizens.
Environmental Initiative is a nonprofit organization that builds relationships with businesses, state and local governments, community members and other nonprofits to develop collaborative solutions to Minnesota’s environmental problems. Our programs and projects include air pollution reduction through Clean Air Minnesota, advancing a circular economy through the Minnesota Sustainable Growth Coalition, hosting conversations about public policies through our Policy Forum series, and more.
Fresh Energy is speeding Minnesota’s transition to a clean energy economy, which will ensure that our region enjoys good health, a vibrant economy, and thriving communities today and for generations to come. From putting Minnesota on the pathway to being a national renewable energy leader to promoting clean transportation options for our growing economy, Fresh Energy has been an essential partner in helping the region develop efficient, cost-effective, and inclusive energy programming.
Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) was established in 1993 to engage people to protect, restore and enhance the Mississippi River and its watershed in the Twin Cities region. In pursuit of this mission we've developed four interrelated programs that focus on water quality and watershed health, land protection and restoration, community education and engagement, and protection of the public values of the river corridor.
