Help the City of Kelsey become a pioneer in energy efficiency by proposing and defending an incentive-based policy. This way, Kelsey can lead the way toward responsible and sustainable growth while decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and negative environmental consequences. The Learning Team will play the role of a team of environmental analysts presenting a proposal to the Kelsey City Council.
