You are invited to join an Information Session to learn more about the High Meadows Fund 2-year post-graduate Fellowship offered exclusively to Princeton and Middlebury seniors graduating between December 2018-May 2019. Tomorrow’s event, Tuesday, December 4th, is at 4:30 in The Franklin Environmental Center at Hillcrest (Room 103). Hear from current fellow, Will Lathrop, Environmental Philanthropy Associate and a Princeton graduate. He will discuss his day-to-day work on sustainability issues throughout the state of Vermont and in particular how a community’s values inform their land use.
Here is a description from the the High Meadows Fund of the issues they work on:
Climate disruption threatens Vermont’s communities and working landscape. It is urgent Vermonters address it head-on by both lowering their contribution to a warming planet and adapting to the changes already underway. High Meadows applies this sense of urgency in three areas of focus:
- Land Use: Encouraging working farms and forests, compact settlements, and watershed land use that protects communities, soil, and water quality.
- Clean and Efficient Energy: Lowering fossil fuel use, especially in homes of low income Vermonters.
- Farm, Food and Forest Enterprises: Promoting vibrant enterprises as well as healthy ecosystems.
We do our work through charitable grantmaking, research, convenings, direct engagement of our staff, and investing for mission impact. We particularly value social and marketplace innovation and collaboration.
Please see our website, www.highmeadowsfund.org, for more information and join the event tomorrow to learn more about the position or contact thimmeli[at]middlebury.edu if you cannot attend.
