We’re introducing something new in Vermont and we want YOU to be involved! Better Future Project and 350VT are partnering through Climate Summer Vermont to bring an exciting and successful youth education and movement building program to our state starting this summer.
Climate Summer is a summer program for student 18 to 25 years old. Climate Summer riders travel exclusively by bicycle in small teams across New England, spending one week in a community before biking on to the next. While in each town, riders connect with community leaders that are actively addressing society’s addiction to fossil fuels by crafting local solutions that strengthen communities. Riders bring with them a movement-building perspective and ethos, help to highlight the important work of local organizations with the local press, and cross-pollinate ideas when they ride to others towns and share what they have learned.
South Royalton/Randolph: (6/26 – 7/1)
Bradford: (7/2 – 7/8)
Waterbury/Montpelier: (7/9 – 7/15)
Vergennes: (7/16 – 7/22)
Burlington: (7/23 – 7/29)
Rutland: (7/30 – 8/5)
Brattleboro: (8/6 – 8/12)
