"Finding Common Ground: An Exploratory Workshop on Vermont's Future in the Age of Climate Change"

Students researched six different sectors in Vermont to determine how climate change will impact them, as well as to assess that sector's current level of activity in addressing climate change issues.

The class culminated in a workshop for representatives of these diverse sectors where the students presented their results and facilitated a discussion on visions for Vermont's future, clean energy strategies, and economic opportunities.  Below are links to the sectoral reports and the workshop press release. 

Student research for this class was modeled after an ES 401 class that assessed the level of activity of religious institutions in Vermont in addressing climate change.  View that report here.
