Sustainable Meriden Internship Program
Sustainable Meriden Internship Program in Cooperation with Sustainable CT:
Sustainable Meriden is a student-led program that engages the community to achieve Meriden’s sustainability goals. Through the efforts of this program, environmental and social goals can be achieved while promoting a vibrant community and economic growth. The collaborative community engagement will help Meriden achieve certification through the Sustainable CT initiative and become a thriving, resilient city.
Sustainable Meriden's next project is working with The RiseUP Group to paint a mural on the walls inside the Bunker Ave bridge overpass. Sustainable CT will match $5,000 if we can raise $5,000. We need a minimum of 50 donors. Any amount between $5-$100 will help us reach our goal.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our 2nd annual Chalk the Walk!
