Green Cities Accord


Green Minneapolis is a multi-project non-profit with a mission to advance the vibrancy of the Twin Cities through parks and greening. Through the Twin Cities Climate Resiliency Initiative (TCCRI), a public/private partnership focused on expanding the urban tree canopy across the metro area, we plant trees that sequester carbon and cool heat islands by establishing partnerships and identifying new funding sources. As part of this initiative, we have created a coalition of partners that includes the Trust for Public Land, The Nature Conservancy, Minneapolis Parks Foundation, Friends of the Mississippi River, Mississippi Park Connection and the Minneapolis Regional Chamber. Green Minneapolis also led the fundraising campaign to renovate Peavey Plaza. Peavey Plaza is now operated and programmed by Green Minneapolis on behalf of the City of Minneapolis. Green Minneapolis programs the Plaza, and is responsible for all maintenance and operations.
