U of Vermont students hold climate action rally
BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — University of Vermont students are holding a rally for climate action.
Organizers say the goal is to discuss what Vermont colleges and high schools are doing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to lead on climate education by example.
Independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and Democratic Rep. Peter Welch as well as Democratic Lieutenant Gov. David Zuckerman are expected to speak at the rally in the Davis Center on Monday. There will also be a speaker discussing youth-led climate action and an alumni panel on campus climate action.
Students from other Vermont colleges and high schools are invited to attend.
