“Help Us Do the Right Things! Strategies for Expanding Sustainable Practices in Communities”

This paper summarizes participants’ community-scale thoughts and ideas from a large regional program in Northeast Wisconsin in fall 2018. With funding from the McKnight Foundation, Cool Choices partnered with New North, Inc., an economic development organization representing 18 counties in Northeast Wisconsin, to implement a regional sustainability program. Fifteen organizations joined the program engaging more than 1,350 participants. Our partners included some of the biggest employers in the region, as well as participation from several faith groups and students in a UW-Oshkosh business class. In total, participants reported actions that will reduce annual carbon emissions by more than 2,500 metric tons.

As climate impacts become clearer the public is increasingly interested in solutions. People want to do their part and they also want to know that local leaders—their elected officials as well as their employers—are doing their part.
