Winter Weekend - February 2 to 4, 2007
Global Climate Change

Speakers
[Friday] [Saturday] [Sunday]
Human-induced climate change is happening and the impacts are being felt around the world.  Coincident with release of the 2007 IPCC report, 69 Vermont High School students, more than a dozen staff, and over 20 specialists in renewable energy, conservation, the arts, and social action gathered at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont for a weekend of learning and action.  Students came away with deeper knowledge of the problem, a voice to articulate their ideas about such an immense issue, and specific ways in which they can make positive personal and societal changes.  We intend this weekend and its programming as a model for others to adapt around the country as we all seek to make planet Earth a better place to live.
