Vermont Education Goes Global at Paris Climate Talks

[From Vermont Public Radio]

As leaders in more than 150 countries prepare to meet in Paris with an eye toward forming a landmark climate agreement, some students at both Vermont Law School and the University of Vermont are preparing to make contributions of their own to the international effort to address climate change.

UVM sophomore Gina Fiorile plans to showcase a climate education model based on “youth climate summits.” The model was adopted from a program run by the Wild Center in the Adirondacks, where Fiorile grew up. This year, there were youth climate summits across the U.S. and internationally; Fiorile is going to Paris with the Wild Center in an effort to spread the idea even more.
