Alliance for Sustainability – Linking Citizens and Cities for Sustainable Communities

ramseySmallGroup

We support citizen volunteers, elected & appointed leaders, and city staff in 40 metro communities to work together to achieve their communities’ sustainability goals, including:

  • Achieving MN Green Step Cities best practices
  • Including resilience and sustainability themes in their Comprehensive Plans
  • Engaging residents and businesses to take action to achieve city goals on to energy, active living, healthy food access, water quality, and zero waste with our nonprofit, county, and watershed district partners

We offer regular workshops/networking gatherings for city staff, city environmental & planning commission volunteers, elected leaders, and citizen volunteers to share their successes and lessons.

Please contact us so we can connect you with other Alliance volunteers who live in your city and explore ways to build your community and advance sustainability within your community.

Our volunteer coordinators in each county are available to support new and existing volunteer teams to plan their next steps.

In addition to supporting volunteers with City Environmental Commissions, we are also supporting citizen sustainability commissions in the following communities (more are welcome):
