"Our ideals, laws and customs should be based on the proposition that each generation, in turn, becomes the custodian rather than the absolute owner of our resources and each generation has the obligation to pass this inheritance on to the future."

Sustain Winona: A Community Sustainability Collaboration

Winona’s largest public and private institutions - Winona State University, the City of Winona, the County of Winona, Winona Area Public Schools, Minnesota State College - Southeast Technical, and Saint Mary's University of Minnesota - have all committed to partnering together to “walk the talk” in implementing sustainable environmental practices.

This public and private, government and education collaboration is believed to be unique in the nation. The seven local organizations will work together in coming months and years to achieve certification as an ISO 14001 community. That means all of the organizations will eventually meet international standards for energy-efficient and environment-friendly operations.
