The People of Greensburg, Kansas

“What does the next generation do with this little town that rebuilt in a whole different way?”

When the town of Greensburg was leveled by a tornado in 2007, the community made the choice to rebuild stronger. This small town’s roots in agriculture made sustainability easy to adopt — many eco-friendly choices were commonsense practices they’d been doing all along. The people of Greensburg came together to prove that clean energy and sustainability make economic sense and build stronger communities. “Going green” isn’t about ideology — it’s about people.

The town that they rebuilt from the ground up will be a legacy of community effort and smart decisions for generations to come.
