Robust public engagement can help state leaders advance climate solutions that address our challenges, respond to community needs, and bring new benefits and opportunities.
Everyone deserves a seat at the table. Envisioning our shared green future needs to be a collaborative effort where we listen deeply and work together in new ways.
Host a Climate Conversation
Solving the climate crisis requires participation from all parts of the state, people from all walks of life, and from the public and private sectors. Reducing climate impacts and adapting to climate change could also be an opportunity to make our communities more vibrant, equitable and sustainable.
Talking about shared goals and priorities is an important way to involve more Minnesotans in climate action. By hosting a conversation, you are helping build Minnesota’s climate action and protect our future.

Share your ideas for bold action
Throughout 2021, state agencies will engage in conversations with people across the state and encourage Minnesotans to propose new solutions and ideas that address the climate crisis. Share your ideas or comment on other people’s suggestions for government, individuals, or industries. In early 2022, these proposed ideas and solutions will be turned into a meaningful platform for climate action for Minnesota.
