Everyone’s Economic Opportunity in Climate Action – Panels and Conversations – Norwich

August 24, 2017 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Montshire Museum
1 Montshire Rd
Norwich, VT 05055

A response to the pressing environmental challenge of climate change is urgently needed. It also presents one of the biggest economic development opportunities Vermont and the world has ever seen – if equitable and done right.

Don’t miss a panel discussion and audience-engaged conversation about how Vermont can seize this opportunity. Hear from a respected Vermont business owner, a low income advocate and legislators about the kind of equitable and exciting opportunities climate action provides.

This event is hosted by the Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility and the Vermont Natural Resources Council. Panelists will frame the current context of climate (in)action in Vermont and outline the policy responses they are working to advance to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, grow our economy and ensure all Vermonters benefit from the transition off of fossil fuels. Attendees can offer input, ask questions and find out meaningful ways to engage.

The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments provided. RSVP, submit a question for the panelists in advance, and find more information at the following links for each event:
