The Vermont Climate Council is gearing up to develop a plan that will serve as a roadmap for how our state addresses the climate crisis. Now is our chance to speak up for a Climate Action Plan that rapidly transitions us off of fossil fuels while centering justice, equity, and most-impacted Vermonters to ensure we all can thrive!
The Council is hosting the following series of in-person and virtual public engagement hearings on the Climate Action Plan. Council Members want to hear from you – and it is critical that we all show up to call for a plan works for all of us.
