Working Groups


CONNECT engages in policy areas that members identify as most pressing. These naturally change over time depending on current political climate, global and local events, and member, partner, and CONNECT's capacity. In fall of 2019, the top priorities of members became housed in one of our three new working groups. Each working group has one or two issues that we are actively engaging the region to address.

Economic & Environmental Development Working Group

CONNECT imagines possibilities where economic development and environmental sustainability mutually reinforce each other, rather than being pitted against one another.
