Dear Healthy Minnesota Partnership:
In response to Governor Dayton’s Executive Order 11-32, the Environmental Quality Board is convening a series of Citizen Forums as part of the Minnesota Environmental Congress. We welcome and encourage you and your organization to participate at the local Citizen Forum events on the dates listed in the attached letter.
The Citizen Forums will engage Minnesotans in dialogue about how the environment and energy use impact the quality of life in Minnesota (an important contextual factor for health!). They also will evaluate Minnesota’s performance and progress on protecting air, water and land resources.
The forums are free and open to everyone and they would like to reach as many Minnesotans as possible.
