About the Morris Model
The Morris Model is an award-winning group made up of partner organizations working together towards a shared vision of advancing a sustainable community in Morris, Minnesota and West-Central Minnesota. Morris is already a model community and strives to become even more of a model through our local, state, and global relationships. The Morris Model focuses its work on energy conservation, clean energy, community resilience, cultural exchange, and celebration with specific goal areas within clean and efficient energy, transportation, waste reduction and recycling, and education.
