Defining Sustainability: Education
Hundreds of Vermonters gathered on May 5th, 2012 for the 350.org Climate Impacts Day, Connect The Dots event in Waitsfield, Vermont to learn about recent developments surrounding the climate crisis. Many who attended this event had spent the morning volunteering at Vermont Green Up Day activities in and around the Mad River Valley, one of the regions hardest hit by Tropical Storm Irene.
Speakers during the day’s events included 350.org founder Bill McKibben, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin. The event was particularly special for many Vermonters in that it was first in a series of recent global climate action events where Bill McKibben was able to attend the day’s events in his own home state of Vermont. Climate Impacts Day included thousands of communities around the world who came together to Connect the Dots, learn, raise awareness and call for urgent action to stop the climate crisis. Keep connecting the dots
These images are part of a long-form documentary project I have undertaken on sustainable living in Vermont with the working title: Defining Sustainability
