Monday, October 16th, 6-8pm in the Film House at Main Street Landing, 60 Lake St., Burlington, Vermont.
Climate change may be the biggest economic development opportunity Vermont – and the world – has ever seen. But only if we act now to make sure our response is equitable and done right.
We need your help to make sure Vermont acts on climate: Join us for a panel discussion and audience-engaging conversation about how Vermont can seize the economic opportunities in climate change action. Hear from a respected Vermont business owner, a low income advocate, and legislators about the kind of equitable and exciting opportunities climate action provides.
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. Attend the event to offer input, ask questions, and find out meaningful ways to engage.
Panelists:Representative Martin LaLonde (South Burlington)Karen Lafayette, Vermont Low Income Advocacy CouncilAshley Orgain, Seventh Generation, Mission Advocacy & Outreach DirectorRepresentative Diana Gonzalez (Burlington, Winooski)
You'll also have the opportunity to hear from local legislative hosts including Rep. Mary Sullivan, among other potential local legislators.
