Lowell, MA is a city whose citizens are experiencing a transition to economic and environmental sustainability. This transition is not the work of one organization or the city government alone. This transition is occurring as a result of a complex network of local, state, and federal partnerships and connections. A great example of an important environmental and education partnership is between Mill City Grows and the West Meadow School Garden, located at the Dr. An Wang Middle School. Last year was the school's first growing season and they were able to donate 20 lbs. of fresh produce to local charities.
Another example is the partnership between 350MA and A Better Future Project. 350.org is a worldwide organization that has nodes throughout the world. These nodes operate better when a partnership is formed with another organization. A Better Future Project focuses "on empowering, connecting, and activating leaders in this movement, working across and bringing together key constituencies," (Betterfutureproject.org).
We can't all fight climate change alone, but together we can become more powerful and more influential.
