Vermont activists Friday started a five-day walk calling for rapid action on climate change.

It's being spearheaded by 350VT. Participants are starting in Middlebury and walk more than 60 miles to the Statehouse in Montpelier.

Organizers say that over the next five days, the walkers will highlight the climate consequences of some actions, celebrate examples of climate solutions and bring attention to the climate crisis.

Organizers say they're urging lawmakers to pass bills that ban or limit the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure in Vermont.
