Vermont 2050: Rethinking the Urban-Rural Relationship
September 15, 2019
To kick off our Urban-Rural program, EcoCiv is gathering leaders from across the state of Vermont to participate in a one-day event called Vermont 2050: Rethinking the Urban-Rural Relationship, that will take place at the Middlebury College Bread Loaf Campus on September 15, 2019. In partnership with the Center for Process Studies, Middlebury College, and special support from the Tse Foundation, EcoCiv will facilitate a charrette-style discussion that will allow participants from a wide range of industries and backgrounds to engage face-to-face in designing a plan we call Vermont 2050: Roadmap to the Future, a Bio-Regional Approach. Participants will include leaders and representatives from academia, government, business, agriculture, NGO’s and civil organizations and education and brief talks by speakers on topics such as ecological civilization and bioregional planning will be interspersed between group activities and two formal rounds of charrette-style backcasting.
