Mayors Agree to Move Forward Together on Advocacy for Legislative Change

Over 30 mayors and environmental policy leaders, representing some of Minnesota's key municipal leaders in climate protection and energy efficiency initiatives, met to discuss the benefits of regional collaboration on March 5. The challenge was to see if there was agreement on developing "voluntary and locally led platform to meet the challenge of climate change." There was consensus that moving forward advocacy for legislative change together would be most effective. Further, that integrating the technical expertise of the Center for Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy (CSTEP) would be very beneficial.
