The City of Edina approved its first Climate Action Plan for the community in December, 2021. The plan helps those who live and work in Edina imagine and achieve a future where the earth and all who live on it thrive.

The plan includes 200 actions that can be taken in Edina to meet goals by 2030. The City’s greenhouse gas emission reduction goals target a reduction in City operations and communitywide emissions by 45 percent below 2019 levels and achieve net zero emissions by 2050, in line with the 2015 global Paris Agreement. Goals are arranged under the categories of Transportation & Land Use, Water & Wastewater, Buildings & Energy, Local Food & Agriculture, Green Space & Trees, Climate Health & Safety and Climate Economy.

Youth Climate Stories


What do you want to say about climate change? 

The City of Edina is creating a Climate Action Plan, or CAP, and wants to hear your climate story.  Telling your climate story lets others know what you’re thinking and feeling about what’s happening to our climate and what we should be doing about it.  You can even write a story from the future-you telling us how we made the CAP work! 

Storytelling is a really powerful way to make climate action personal and inspire others toward action, too. Plus, by sharing your climate story, you will be helping to guide the goals and actions being created right now in Edina’s CAP.
