Ready to take on climate change together?

We will not be able to offer the Climate Change Sprint this season, but hope to expand our Institute offerings into the future. Learn more about our other Institute offerings below.

2022’s Virtual Climate Change Sprint

This February 4th – 6th, join GIV in asking and answering the hard questions: what will Vermont look like after 50 more years of climate change? Let’s figure it out and change it. How do we lobby for action on a legislative level? Let’s get started. What art can we create to make people care about the climate? Let’s make it, right now!

Come dive into group projects, interactive challenges, and intensive workshops designed to give you the connections, resources, and inspiration to take on climate change in Vermont and beyond. It’s not a marathon – it’s a sprint. So let’s get a running start towards solving the climate crisis together!

Applications close Friday, January 28th.
