Join the Minneapolis Foundation for a year of learning and action focused on the climate crisis and its intersection with racial equity. Be a part of one, or all, of our offerings.
Our Learning Collective
Throughout the year, we will bring our community together to learn more about climate justice. We will host virtual gatherings, events in partnership with The Nature Conservancy, a climate summit sponsored by the Family Philanthropy Resource Center, and a hands-on climate service project planned with input from participants.
Additional Ways to Get Involved
We are collecting and creating content that digs into climate research with partners like Sven Sundgaard and the Great Northern. Join us as we explore climate change through the lenses of culture and heritage, the economy, and social equity.
