The goal of the Twin Cites Urban Sustainability (TCUS) Forum was (1) to strengthen and expand linkages among the practitioners and academics involved in urban sustainability (US) and urban ecosystems (UE) in the Twin Cities and (2) to develop a framework for “translational research” – research that would connect the sustainability goals of Minnesota’s urban communities with research and outreach at the University of Minnesota.

The project is now completed.
