14th Annual VECAN Conference

This event centers and celebrates the critical role that Vermonters in every community play in moving our state to a more clean, efficient, affordable and equitable energy future. The conference will take place virtually for the second year in a row with the opening session on Hopin, followed by lunchtime workshops on Zoom. This year’s event will feature an overview of federal, state, and local climate action, local success stories, workshops on key topics, and more.

All sessions are available for free, thanks to our generous sponsors. There is a $25 suggested donation for those who are able, payable with registration for the opening session on Saturday.

Find more information below and at our website VECAN.net. 

The five-day online series will take place December 4th, 6th, 7th, 8th & 9th:
