The goal of the Green Mountain Global Forum is to promote greater awareness and understanding of global issues by bringing knowledgeable and thought provoking speakers to the Mad River Valley. We hope to encourage higher levels of public concern and involvement, foster connections in the community and a sense of solidarity with the outside world, and inspire change and action.

We strive to appeal to a wide audience of our Vermont community, keeping all presentations free and open to the public and welcome the support and participation of the community. For directions to venues see below right.
