TWO – Attend a listening session

Attend a listening session. The community input, feedback, guidance, and perspective received will be used in the creation of the new plan. It will inform the entire planning process for our new Climate and Equity Plan. The City of Minneapolis serves a diverse community. We each bring a unique perspective to the issues and opportunities presented by climate change. We recognize that our changing climate affects some of us more.

We hope BIPOC communities will be represented to share their views
