Area businesses and nonprofits are increasingly involved with climate change--both its challenges and opportunities. Their creative solutions are becoming a growing part of our state’s economy. VCRD hosted 3 public forums to hear from people adapting and growing businesses that lower Vermont’s carbon impact and to gather ideas from the public on how to nurture this emerging field.
The forums are the next step for public input to the Vermont Climate Change Economy Council which is developing a practical plan to reduce carbon emissions and stimulate green economic development in Vermont.
This series of videos captured the Burlington Forum on October 29, 2015. The panelists include local business leaders and elected officials.
