Environmental and Climate Justice in Vermont: Issues and Opportunities - VECAN Conference Workshop
There is a clear need – with growing momentum to meet it – to formally establish and more fully focus on environmental and climate justice in Vermont. In this workshop, get rooted in what environmental and climate justice means (or should mean) in Vermont. Hear about important co-created work that has been done to put forward and work to formally enact an “EJ” policy in Vermont this coming year. Get an update on the nascent but needed Vermont Climate Council work to focus – procedurally and in ensuing programs and policy design – on a just transition. And hear about opportunities to help achieve greater economic and environmental justice in rural, low income and overburdened communities, including an overview of some specific transportation and energy innovation programs and the potential transformative opportunities via incoming federal funds to advance a just transition.
