Here is an amazing opportunity for your community to benefit from the research and resource of the University of Minnesota.
The jist: The Resilient Communities Project is a year-long partnership between the University of Minnesota and one local community in the state. Students and faculty from across the University collaborate with the partner community to address the self-defined sustainability-related needs of the community through course-based projects. Everything is oriented to creating on-the-ground impact and momentum for a community looking to move towards a more sustainable and livable future.
If this sounds like something your community is interested in, check out their website for more information and an application packet. The registration deadline is February 14, 2014.
