Climate Dialogue Participants
Winona County Minnesota Climate Dialogue Participants

Rural communities are hard hit by changes in weather and climate, but often left out of climate discussions. The Jefferson Center in St. Paul, MN, used a citizen jury model to create Rural Climate Dialogues, engaging rural residents with the resources and information they need to think critically about community issues and create sustainable solutions. Their recommendations address current community needs, and are presented to local, state, and national policymakers.
