There are many ways to make a difference and we all have a variety of skills, knowledge and experience to bring to this movement. Please let us know what your interest, skills, and knowledge areas are that you are hoping to gain and contribute when signing up below.
One way to get involved is to Join a local group!
We are excited to offer an opportunity for people to get involved in climate action and to help build the climate movement in every part of Vermont!
350Vermont is organized into nodes, or local groups, in different parts of the state. A node is made up of a group of people that meet every other week and are committed to learning, planning, and acting together around climate change. Nodes are led by node members and decisions are made collectively. In the past year, nodes have planned actions, coordinated film screenings, and facilitated workshops for the community.
Currently there are Nodes in Burlington, Central Vermont, Brattleboro, Bennington, Manchester, and the Upper Valley. We hope to have a Node in every region in the state and you can help us make that possible. Interested in starting a group near you? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What are the goals for Vermont Nodes?
We envision Nodes as groups that support communities and individuals throughout the state to get involved in climate action. By being volunteer run and directed, the movement is truly in the people’s hands. Our goals for Nodes are to:
provide local opportunities for gathering and organizing around climate change;
create a group that is self directed and where decisions are made democratically;
form a statewide network of climate activists;
create a space for people to learn and to have fun!
