ABOUT US

We service Woodstock, Vermont, surrounding towns and the Upper Valley region.

Vision

We exist to lead our communities through the climate emergency, empowering Woodstock and the rest of the Upper Valley to meet climate commitments and live sustainably through advocacy, education and collaboration. 

Founded in 2009, Sustainable Woodstock is a not-for-profit community and environmental action and education organization that builds on Woodstock’s legacy as the birthplace of the modern conservation movement.

We encourage peoples of diverse backgrounds and from all walks of life to incorporate wise environmental, economic and socially responsible practices into their daily lives. Our programs and initiatives empower local and regional communities to meet the challenges of a changing world: from fighting climate change by reducing fossil fuel use and empowering reliance on renewable energy, to increasing community and residential recycling, improving long-term food security and promoting local and regional economic development.

We believe strongly that the intersection of the climate crisis and the movement for racial equity has made the connection between social justice and environmental stewardship clear and present. 

We are truly all in this together.
