Sunrise Middlebury would like to welcome you to a Vermont Town Hall on the Green New Deal. The town hall will offer the opportunity to listen to presentations on the Green New Deal for Vermont and the U.S. as well as the Sunrise movement. Participants are encouraged to share stories about the impacts of climate change and discuss what a Green New Deal could mean for Vermont.
Many people are inspired by the vision of a Green New Deal. And history has shown us that the sweeping societal change we’re calling for with the Green New Deal can only be won with an alignment of political and social movements that establish the political ‘common sense,’ and advance a shared agenda for society. We know we can’t do this alone! Town Halls are an opportunity to build relationships and power with other organizations and movements who share our values and have interest in the Green New Deal.
Click here for the Facebook event page. Location is subject to change and updates will be posted there as the planning process unfolds.

The Green Mountain Conservation Camp (GMCC) program run by Fish & Wildlife is still searching for two female natural resource instructors for the 2019 season. The position begins June 3rd and ends August 17th.
GMCC’s mission is to educating youth about Vermont’s natural resources. The camps give youth life skills and knowledge they can use to continue the state’s traditional rural pursuits–enjoying all aspects of the outdoor world. The program’s greatest strength is connecting young people to the outdoors.
Annually, about 1,000 kids between the ages of 12-16 spend a week at GMCC. The camps run for nine weeks in the summer, and there are separate weeks for boys and girls. The camps are located at two sites: Edward F. Kehoe Camp in Castleton, VT and Buck Lake Camp in Woodbury, VT.
A hands-on day of learning for anyone participating in international cohorts or social impact-related summer experiences or research. Participants will explore the ethics of engagement through multiple lenses and will leave with a toolkit of culturally-appropriate strategies for maximizing your summer experience.
