Stay informed, stay connected – two things.
You’re Invited! VECAN Winter Webinar: Environmental Justice: An Equitable Approach to the Energy Transition
Join the Vermont Energy & Climate Action Network (VECAN) next Wednesday, January 17th, at 12pm for a webinar to delve into how local initiatives can address environmental challenges, advocate for underprivileged communities, and work towards a more inclusive and environmentally responsible Vermont. This webinar offers a platform for meaningful dialogue and collaborative solutions to create a greener and fairer future for all Vermonters. Hear from Karla Raimundi, Agency of Natural Resources Director of Environmental Justice and Civil Rights; Sophi Veltrop, the Vermont Climate Action Office’s Community Engagement & Communications Coordinator; and Elena Mihaly, Vice President of Conservation Law Foundation Vermont.
Last Call for Applications: VNRC’s Small Grants for Smart Growth Program
Do you want to survey your community about future development in town? Do you want to engage your neighbors on improving local housing options? VNRC’s Small Grants for Smart Growth program, launched in 2018, provides seed money for catalyzing community-based initiatives related to smart growth. Smart growth allows for a variety of housing for people of all ages, transportation choices, unique public places for everybody to enjoy, and healthy farms, forests, and natural areas. It also prioritizes public participation in making decisions about what the future looks like, so that our land use decisions are inclusive, not exclusive. We hope your community will consider applying for a Small Grant!
