Summary of Projects

Grow Grant in 2018 to test messaging, primarily in two communities in VT, regarding the impacts of climate change on human health delivered by medical and health professionals, not environmental activists. The proposed project is designed to be an experiment around communications and messaging to further climate change project implementation in the future.
