Perception of Indiana: Positive and Negative

Sustainable Indiana 2016 seeks to encourage Hoosiers by discovering, cataloging, and celebrating Hoosier based climate solutions. Part of this mission is to counteract the perception that Indiana is always a laggard when it comes to environmental matters.
