Promoting Environmental Sustainability in Monona
The Natural Step Monona (TNSM) is a nonprofit grassroots community organization in city of Monona. We collaborated in a total of three service learning capstone courses, conducting community-based research projects. The courses were administered by the Community Environmental Scholars Program at the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies. Through a series of water-related activities integrated in these courses, the partnership has helped strategically positioned TNSM in Monona. The partnership has provided information that allows TNSM to design effective community actions and build coalition with broader community-based organizations. This partnership has helped facilitate future paths for local sustainability actions in Monona.
