Intro

The Solutions Team is a new initiative from MN350 volunteers to “build the positives” by pushing industry-wide shifts toward sustainable alternatives and envisioning the world we want to see. Join us to discuss and advance renewable agriculture, clean transportation, efficient just energy, and more.

The Solutions Team meets every two weeks on Thursday evenings, at 6:30 pm at the MN350 office (2104 Stevens Ave S). For specific dates, check out the Events Calendar or the Weekly Action Alert and feel free to contact our volunteer leader Stan (stan@mn350.org) or our staff lead Noa (noa@mn350.org) with questions.

 

Why It Matters

From the beginning, MN350 has focused on fighting the injustice and violence of climate change. But we can’t just say no to the bad – we have to be ready to build the good as well. While we fight injustice, we must also build better systems. Through positive messages and practical solutions, we can create the path for a more socially just and ecologically sound world. That’s why a group of passionate volunteers started the Solutions Team, to help us charge forward into a better future.

What We’re Doing

We have several different work areas, where volunteers create and lead projects to help move our local economy forward. Among our work areas:

  • Promoting clean transportation, for the climate and the health of our communities
  • Fighting for inclusive financing, allowing everyone access to money-saving energy efficiency programs
  • Building out new models of agriculture that sequester atmospheric carbon instead of increasing it
  • Exploring the possibilities for resilient, localized economies to handle climate change

 

How To Get Involved

The Solutions Team meets every two weeks on Thursday evenings, at 6:30 pm at the MN350 office (2104 Stevens Ave S). These meetings alternate with the Thursdays chosen for the Pipeline Resistance Team. During our meetings, we share updates on our work, learn together about important climate solutions, and break out into groups to focus in on specific work areas.

For specific dates and action opportunities, check out the Events Calendar or the Weekly Action Alert. The MN350 calendar is updated often, so please be sure to check it for the latest meeting and action opportunities dates and times. Feel free to reach out to our volunteer leader Stan (stan@mn350.org) or our staff lead Noa (noa@mn350.org) with any questions.
