Peg Koellmer, Wilton Go Green’s (WGG) president, has named Daphne Dixon to the newly created position of executive director. Dixon will be taxed with increasing the reach of the organization’s educational forums and programming. In addition to being involved with the organization’s spring festival for six years, Dixon’s experience includes managing the Live Green CT! festivals and Yale University and Fairfield University environmental symposiums as well as helping with hundreds of sustainability and environmental events.

Her first order of business will be to lead WGG’s first How Green is Our Town symposium, taking place November 29 at 9am at the Wilton Library. Environmental-focused citizens and town officials, businesses and residents will gather to develop a five-year action plan and shared vision for WGG and the town of Wilton. Seven Generations Ahead’s founder and executive director, Gary Cunene, will address the symposium.
