Symposium Planning Committee members James Calvin Davis and Tiffany Sargent (Middlebury College), and Katie Shepherd and Alan Tinkler (University of Vermont), cordially invite you to attend the
Vermont Educational Alliance on Poverty | 2nd Annual Symposium | 12-6pm Oct. 26th, 2018, Middlebury College

The Middlebury College Center for Community Engagement, the Privilege & Poverty Academic Cluster, and the University of Vermont College of Education and Social Services, with support from the Fieldstone Foundation, are pleased to present this year’s VEAP Symposium – “Fostering Equitable Communities: The links between environments and poverty”.

Please join us for a student panel discussion, breakout sessions and a keynote address that will consider such questions as:

  • In your community, what links have you seen between poverty and the environment?
  • How has climate change impacted your thinking about community, particularly as the impact relates to individuals and families living in poverty?
  • How can we best situate experiential learning opportunities at the intersection of environment and poverty to foster equitable communities?

Lunch and afternoon refreshments will be provided. Attendance at this event, including lunch and refreshments, is free for invitees.



What do we get from the environment?  Well, pretty much everything. In this keynote we’ll look at the many things that ecosystems do to provide us with healthy and satisfying lives. We’ll look in particular how protecting ecosystems and engaging with nature provides clean water, nutrition, and sense of belonging and place. Please join us.



Date and Time: Friday, October 2th, 12-6pm
Location: Middlebury College Kirk Alumni Center, 217 Golf Course Rd. Middlebury, VT 05753
Cost: Free to invitees!
