Our MIssion

The Vermont Education and Environment Network is a coalition of dozens of organizations and individuals promoting environmental education in Vermont. Our mission is to foster a network of individuals and organizations working together to promote high quality outdoor, environmental and educational experiences. 

Commitment to Change 

We are committed to equity, justice, inclusion and creating systems change within our organization. We acknowledge that when it comes to this work our organization is not yet where we strive to be.  We are working on learning, addressing, and improving the way we move through the world as individuals and an organization by engaging in active listening and learning.
