Regional Welcoming Community Programming in Northeast Minnesota
Regional Welcoming Community Programming in Northeast Minnesota

In early 2020, Northspan undertook considerable groundwork to determine the feasibility of welcoming community work. It conducted a survey of potential partners to determine interest and buy-in to the concept, conducted research on the potential benefits and pitfalls of such work, and worked with other regions in Minnesota. These background investigations revealed both a strong desire to address these topics and a clear empirical case that a more welcoming community is a source of growth for regional populations and economies. This presentation will inform you of the Welcoming Community activities now in action in northeast Minnesota.
