Thank you for the 2023 Minnesota Climate Adaptation Awards Nominations!

Minnesota Climate Adaptation Awards

The Minnesota Climate Adaptation Awards, presented annually since 2014, celebrate exceptional achievements in leadership, education, research, policies, and practices that improve resilience or climate justice through the development, advancement, or implementation of climate adaptation strategies.

We know that celebrating success and showcasing the actions and leadership of our peers can help to accelerate adaptation across Minnesota, and beyond. Past recipients have developed cutting-edge adaptation plans for their communities, supported project-specific implementation of adaptation investments, and served as leaders championing adaptation across their organizations.

Many thanks to everyone who submitted nominations for this year's awards! We received over 30 nominations and look forward to celebrating all of our nominees and the award recipients on Saturday, January 28, 2023 at The Bell Museum.
