The wide scope of any Green New Deal calls for a review of dozens of existing studies and data about Rhode Island’s conditions. Researchers are reviewing documents that cover a range of issues, from climate change impacts, to social equity, to sector-by-sector economic outlooks.
The best solutions come from people with direct experiences to the challenges facing their communities. We are bringing together a wide spectrum of experiences to ensure that our outcomes reflect these perspectives.
With a framework as ambitious as a statewide green new deal, it's critical that well-crafted policy delivers on its intended objectives. Policy outcomes will be framed out of our research and engagement.
