We envision resilient cities and other communities with the ability to not just adapt to change but also thrive in times of turmoil or chronic stress. Our mission is to support, empower and connect citizen groups and local governments to promote sustainability, with the overarching goal of making communities more resilient to harmful shocks and chronic stresses. RCC advocates for innovative, systemic solutions that promote environmental wellbeing and economic, racial and gender equity.
Adapting to and mitigating climate change is a key focus for us. We work with community coalitions, city environmental commissions and other environmental thought leaders to curb carbon emissions and meet local and state climate action goals.
Our origins are deeply rooted in community. We started as a project of the Alliance for Sustainability, and after three years of groundbreaking community development work we were ready to become an independent organization focused on community resilience.
We were invited to reimagine and renew the mission of the long-standing Twin Cities Bioneers chapter, Northland Sustainable Solutions. Today RCC carries on a shared vision: people and organizations working together to solve societal problems and foster a community culture in Minnesota committed to sustainability and taking local action to ensure the health and prosperity of residents for generations to come.
