This is it, Vermont. Tomorrow, May 5, people all across the state will stand with our global community to connect the dots on climate impacts.
Here in the Green Mountains, we’ll gather in Waitsfield to share our stories, make art, plant trees and then close this epic day with a huge rally and an iconic group photo. We won’t solve the climate crisis in one day, but together we can help the world understand the urgency of the challenge.
The rally starts at 3:30 and will include Bill McKibben, Governor Shumlin, Bernie Sanders, and other local leaders.
Please RSVP here. Full schedule and event details below.
We’re hoping to see many of you in Waitsfield tomorrow, but if you can’t make it or if this event isn’t right for you, find other Climate Impacts Day events here.
Let’s show the world we’re ready to do the serious work ahead. Let’s connect the dots to the new Vermont.
