Three Things: A Climate Advocacy Day, Make Big Oil Pay Campaign Tour, and EAN’s 2023 Annual Report!

Three Things: We had a great time at Climate Advocacy Day with UVM students, the Make Big Oil Pay Campaign is hitting the road, and the Energy Action Network just released their 2023 Progress Report!

Stay informed, connected, and engaged—three things.

We Enjoyed a Climate Advocacy Day with UVM Students!

Last week, Johanna Miller from VNRC and Lauren Hierl from VCV teamed up with VPIRG and state leaders to engage in a dynamic round table conversation with UVM Sustainability students. The discussion revolved around critical topics such as climate action, diverse environmentally-oriented career opportunities, ways in which the youth can actively participate in shaping Vermont’s climate policies, and more. We extend our gratitude to everyone who played a part in making this event a reality! Our conversations with UVM’s students were inspiring, and we look forward to more engagement  in the future.

The Make Big Oil Pay Campaign is Going on Tour! 

Join us this fall for the Make Big Oil Pay Community Action Tour! VPIRG and partners are hitting all 14 Vermont counties to challenge the giant corporations profiting from environmental harm. It’s time they contribute their fair share to combat climate change by creating a Vermont Climate Superfund. These events will offer a platform for sharing climate stories, listening, and engaging in community-driven climate action. Mark your calendar and stay tuned for updates on this tour—we can hold Big Oil accountable together. Join us on tour!

The Energy Action Network Releases their New 2023 Progress Report!

VNRC is proud to be a part of the Energy Action Network (EAN), a network comprising over 200 engaged member organizations and public sector partners. Every year, EAN publishes an annual report, offering a comprehensive overview of Vermont’s advancements in emissions reduction, energy utilization, and related topics. We’re pleased to share that this year’s report is now available for your perusal! The report’s key findings highlight the economic strain caused by our reliance on fossil fuels, the disproportionate energy cost burden on lower-income Vermonters, the significant role of thermal and transportation emissions in our climate challenges, and much more.
