Survey of Rural Minnesotans….
Rural Minnesotans speak out! The Blandin Rural Pulse survey reveals while 65% believe a lack of quality jobs is an issue in their community, 81% are in support of renewable energy development, and 87% believe they can personally impact the quality of life in their community. 41% have never been approached to participate in leadership, from youth sports to local government to nonprofit work. Isn’t it time to have a LOCAL work party, where we come together at the table and over excellent food begin even better conversation about how we can work together to develop a local clean energy economy? And to follow up this party with many others that bring together our collective wisdom and begin the work of transforming our community into a place our children can stay after school because they can find meaningful, gainful work in our community? JOIN US ON NOVEMBER 12th at the Northfield Ballroom for an information sharing session (6:30 pm), followed by a visioning and first steps community discussion (on the 13th at 9:00 am, UCC Church) and consider yourself invited to take leadership. WE ARE THE PEOPLE WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR!
