Join Vermonters in imagining the future

RIPTON — On Saturday, Sept. 15, a unique gathering of Vermonters will take place in Ripton. Called Vision for Vermont Summit, Vermonters from all corners of the state, representing diverse perspectives, and representing different concerns, will spend a day imagining a future supported by common values, strengths and hopes for a future that cares for all Vermonters and the environment.
 Inspired by the Leap Manifesto adopted by Canadians three years ago, an Addison County group called The Huddle decided to take grassroots action. Members of The Huddle are organizing a day for Vermonters to come together and explore creating a Vision for Vermont. Experienced group facilitator Jon Isham will guide attendees through exercises to identify and celebrate all that is important about Vermont.
At the summit, which will take place 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at The Barn on the Bread Loaf campus of Middlebury College, attendees will meet and get to know one another, tell stories about their hopes for the future of Vermont, share a meal, and enjoy some time outdoors on the beautiful Bread Loaf campus. At the end of the day, it is hoped there will be the beginnings of a Vision for Vermont, with a smaller group to continue working on a vision statement in the weeks following the Summit. It is hoped that those who attend will come away feeling more connected with other Vermonters and inspired to continue working toward a Vision for Vermont.
 This event is open to the public, but pre-registration is requested. There is a $10 fee to pay for lunch and snacks. Registrations, questions and inquiries can be sent to [email protected].
