In the aftermath of devastating floods, the City of Columbus Junction was interested engaging residents and increasing sustainability efforts. Working with the City and local organization Keep Columbus Beautiful, a byproduct of Keep Iowa Beautiful, students developed a series of events that aligned with Earth Day celebrations and involved residents. The final proposal outlined three goals and strategies: actively engage residents in community projects that incorporate sustainability; raise household awareness of resources to help sustain, build, and strengthen the community; and engage the youth and adolescent populations.
