We would love to have you join us. If you are interested in networking with your neighbors drop me an email at

What else did we win… Vermontivate’s commitment to help our team achieve a significant and inspiring impact to improve sustainability in our community within one year.

What does that look like? Vermontivate!  promotion and marketing assets to help you engage and activate the support you’ll need. Our friends and allies with great ideas and connections to all sorts of handy resources. Our expertise to help you set a goal that is Vermontivacious.

The Vermontivate website will continue to be available this year after the game and has a wealth of resources about all the sustainability issues, as well as a host of challenge responses to inspire you. It is also a place (as one player expressed) to be soothed and supported on the challenging work ahead of us. The collaboration and goodwill throughout the game —across the town teams and schools—was infectious. Working together within the competition to support each other as one person, one town, one state at a time we all work together to make a difference for the great big planet we share.
