Opportunity to partner with a climate-smart community in Germany

Accelerate your community’s pathway to a cleaner and more efficient energy footprint by partnering with an award-winning climate-smart community in Germany.

The University of Minnesota and the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) invite Minnesota municipalities to apply to a unique three-year program. Municipalities of any size from anywhere in Minnesota are eligible to apply, and there is space for three to four communities.

Leaders from the selected Minnesota communities will travel to Germany to tour sites that model integrated solutions, learn with their Minnesota cohort and German experts, and work with their community twin to accelerate their community’s pathway to a cleaner and more efficient energy footprint.

The selected communities will share their progress and insights at conferences and community events in Minnesota. And they will also have the benefit of working with their NRW twin community while a delegation of NRW municipalities and leaders visits Minnesota each fall.

The application deadline is March 31, 2016, so please apply today.
