Welcome to the Northeast Minnesota Sustainable Development Partnership
Northeast Minnesota Sustainable Development Partnership facilitates sustainable development in northeastern Minnesota by identifying and supporting targeted research and education projects; and by developing networks of cooperation with others and communicating its work.
The Northeast Minnesota Sustainable Development Partnership combines citizen leadership with the research and education resources of the University of Minnesota to foster long term sustainability in the northeast region of Minnesota, with particular attention focusing on agriculture, natural resources, and tourism.
The partnership operates under the following three principles:
Active Citizenship - Local citizen participation in designing and implementing projects in the region.
Sustainable Development - Addressing issues according to sustainable development principles.
University of Minnesota Involvement - A rich relationship between the citizens and their University.
The citizen-faculty Board of Directors envisions a sustainable future for the region and supports targeted projects to achieve this vision. Funding for the Partnership is provided by the Minnesota Legislature through the University of Minnesota.
