The Vermont Council on Rural Development is leading the VT Climate Change Economy Initiative with the premise that confronting climate change through innovative economic development can be a competitive strategy, one that will build national reputation, create jobs, and attract youth and entrepreneurism. VCRD hosted a 2015 Summit to launch the initiative, founded the VT Climate Change Economy Council to develop a practical action plan, and gathered input at 3 public forums.
The 2nd Summit on the Vermont Climate Change Economy will be the launching point of VCCEC’s action platform and will bring together leaders from business, non-profits, public policy and the public to set a campaign of action to advance it. Join us to review the platform of action and identify key steps to reduce carbon emissions while stimulating green economic development and opportunities in Vermont.
