The Twin Cities Daily Planet’s series, The New Normal: Deciding Community Priorities in a Downsized Economy, tackles a different issue each month.
In September we’ll be looking at environmental sustainability and are looking to partner up with groups across the metro area to co-host community conversations. At the conversations we’ll explore the question:
What should be our priority for environmental sustainability in the next decade?
1) Implement stronger regulations
2) Educate for individual actions
3) Rely on market approaches
4) Something else
We’ll do some basic education about environmental sustainability and policy in Minnesota, then we’ll ask participants to weigh in on how environmental issues shape their communities and how we should move forward.
