Our Clean Water Future: Building Resilience and Creating a Culture of Clean Water

On March 24-25, 2017, more than 150 creative and dedicated people from around the state will explore the connections between climate change and water quality, and work together to develop multi-sector initiatives that build social and structure resilience and create a culture of clean water. The 2017 Leahy Center for Lake Champlain Environmental Summit is not a typical conference. It is a dynamic, interactive working session where Summit teams of diverse stakeholders, design and prototype projects that transform their ideas into reality.

The Leahy Summit catalyzed our team's action by getting our partners in one place together with the guidance to develop a strong climate change resilience project and successful grant proposal.Corrie Miller, Executive Director of Friends of the Mad River
