From Vietnam to Vermont, people around the world will come together on 5/5/12 to connect the dots between extreme weather and climate change.
Here in Vermont we will use this day to focus the world’s attention on the recent devastation of Hurricane Irene, and on all the other very real local impacts increasingly being felt across this state.
Towns and communities, businesses and mobile home parks, farmers and maple sugarers, naturalist and stewardship groups, winter sports and tourism groups, anyone and everyone being impacted by these changes will share in telling the story of a changing Vermont.
We will also use this day to raise our call for stronger action towards policies and practices to end our dependence on fossil fuels and move Vermont towards an energy future that puts people and the planet first. We’ll connect the dots by gathering the voices of the new Vermont that is being envisioned to move towards a more just and sustainable future.

350VT and our entire group of statewide event organizers will work hard to connect all these dots, the dots of climate impacts, and the dots of the ruinous power of oil and other fossil fuels is having on our planet and our way of life. We will connect these dots to create a potent call to action to end our dependence on fossil fuels and re-envision Vermont for a better future for all.
Connecting the Dots together,
