The Summit on Creating Prosperity & Opportunity Confronting Climate Change, held February 18, 2015 at the Vermont Technical College in Randolph brought together over 400 scientists, innovative business, non-profit, and community leaders, elected officials, public policy advocates, students, and interested residents to consider the impacts of climate change on Vermont and propose ways to advance the prosperity of the state while addressing them. The Summit focus was on how the emerging opportunities will allow us to build a national reputation, create jobs, and attract young people to our rural communities. The Summit served as a founding point for the Vermont Climate Change Economy Council (VCCEC).
