Description

Climate Smart Municipalities

For the past three years, 5 Minnesota GreenStep Cities communities have partnered with 5 communities from the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia to advance climate action. As part of this partnership, there will be a delegation in town from Germany who have been invited to speak, along with Minnesota counterparts, at our October workshop. We will discuss the partnership generally as well as explore some innovative practices around electric vehicles in both states.
