Vermont Climate Collaborative
University of Vermont President Daniel Mark Fogel and Vermont Governor Jim Douglas signed the VCC Charter on October 1, 2008. The Vermont Climate Collaborative was a hub for research, information, and activity related to climate change in Vermont. The Collaborative created connections between people and projects to:
- build on our research strengths statewide,
- get like-minded people working together,
- develop funding sources for worthwhile projects, and
- prioritize research needs.
Ultimately, the goals of the Collaborative were straightforward: to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to build the green economy.
Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin retired the Collaborative in July 2011 (letter from Governor Shumlin to President Fogel). Many of its functions will be taken up by the Vermont Climate Cabinet, established by Executive Order in May 2011.
