Sharing in the Benefits of a Greening City

The CREATE Initiative advances research and education at the intersection of environment and equity through community engagement, interdisciplinary scholarship, and graduate training. 

Funded by the University of Minnesota’s Grand Challenges Research Initiative, the CREATE Initiative addresses real world problems that materially impact equitable access to environmental amenities while fostering environmental, economic, and racial justice.

Above, attendees celebrate the culmination of two years of work through the CREATE Initiative at our showcase, Sharing in the Benefits of a Greening City, on February 19th 2020. 

By centering the values, needs, and narratives of communities, we are co-developing solutions to critical problems at the intersection of environment and equity.

The CREATE team is made up of a diverse group of interdisciplinary scholars, community leaders, and engaged researchers.

The CREATE Scholars program is an opportunity for University of Minnesota graduate students to get hands on practice in engaged-scholarship and work with CREATE’s community partners. 

Below, you can read about CREATE’s work from the perspective of CREATE Scholars, staff, and researchers.
