Laura Stroup, assistant professor of environmental studies, brought 15 students, mostly environmental studies majors, from her class ES 201 (Environmental Problems) to the Vermont Statehouse for the first ever Climate Lobbying Day on February 26. They were hosted by a Vermont Law School Student, Alex Gilbert, who works in an organization known as Ideas for Policy. The theme of the climate Lobbying Day was Thermal Efficiency. The students learned about the environmental bill passage process in the State Legislature, obtained career information from Alex and other Ideas for Policy members, and talked state legislators about climate change and related concerns in Vermont.
