Wilton Go Green is looking for dedicated Wilton residents to join us as we work to make Wilton a more sustainable community.
No experience necessary! We welcome ALL Wilton residents who are interested in these topics, want to learn more, and engage with fellow citizens for positive change. We know that each person brings their own unique gifts to the table.
Our Board has identified five different Committees, each with a specific goal and topics to address. Each Committee will convene monthly via Zoom. Each Committee will review and discuss goals and will work towards a component of the re-imagined Zero Waste Faire & Sustainable Living Expo for March 2021. Committees will organize their first meeting for the first half of November 2020.
Please take a look at our Committees and and complete our form below to let us know your interest.
