This project was completed as part of the 2018-2019 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with Ramsey County. The goal of this project was to help determine what role Ramsey County can play to assist cities within the county to optimize their resources and leverage existing energy and greenhouse gas reduction work to accelerate county-wide efforts. Students inventoried the energy and climate initiatives and goals of cities in Ramsey County, interviewed representatives from local cities and technical experts, investigated successful models from other parts of the country, and
articulated ideas for how collaboration among the County and cities could accelerate progress on energy and greenhouse gas reduction goals. The students' final report and a poster summarizing the project are available.
Report and poster completed by students enrolled in SUST 4004: Sustainable Communities, taught by Amir Nadav in Spring 2019.
This project was supported by the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), a program at the University of Minnesota whose mission is to connect communities in Minnesota with U of MN faculty and students to advance community resilience through collaborative, course-based projects. RCP is a program of the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA). More information at http://www.rcp.umn.edu.
