This report seeks to describe key features of Alaska’s economic landscape and highlight existing community projects and ideas that are signposts on the road to a sustainable economy. Many of these ideas were brought forth during two workshops in July 2016. Participants were predominantly Alaskans from across the state who hold a great diversity of knowledge and expertise in the different subject areas. In addition to these existing projects, the report includes recommendations for policies that could help amplify and accelerate this transition beyond a continued economic dependence on fossil fuels and toward a just and sustainable economy.
