The Anderson Center hosted a regional climate change solutions conference on Saturday October 4 in collaboration with the Will Steger Foundation, Fresh Energy, MN Interfaith Power and Light, and several local partners. Polar explorer Will Steger convinced the 120 participants of the urgency of dealing with climate change which has had an accelerated impact on the melting in the polar regions.

On October 2nd, Will Steger will join Governor Dayton, Jeff Hamiel, executive director/CEO of the Metropolitan Airports Commission, George P. Sakellaris, president and CEO of a leading energy efficiency and renewable energy company, Ameresco, and Mark Andrew, president and founder of GreenMark, as the group gathers for the opening construction on Minnesota’s largest solar project and the release of the Clean Energy Economy profile.
