Be part of the solutions!
Climate Solutions began as the effort of twelve diverse Maine groups, from higher education, renewable energy businesses, farmers and gardeners, winter sports enthusiasts, faith communities, Native nations, environmentalists, and community development financial institutions, seeking to halt greenhouse gas pollution and adapt to the quickly changing conditions it is creating. These twelve groups became the Founders Circle:
CEI * Conservation Law Foundation * InSource Renewables * Maine Conservation Alliance * Maine Interfaith Power & Light * Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association * Mountain Riders Alliance * The Penobscot Nation * ReVision Energy * The Resilience Hub * Unity College * 350 Maine
In March of 2014, the Climate Solutions Founders Circle hosted two concurrent events on one day at the Augusta Civic Center – an Expo and a Summit. At least 1000 attendees visited the exhibits, listened to panel presentations, and participated in the Summit. Over 300 middle and high school students were among the attendees.
Many participants expressed interest in following up on the idea of promoting solutions to the challenges of climate change. They will be meeting to formulate plans. We will post updates here, along with reports, videos and photos from Climate Solutions 2014, resources on climate solutions, and updates to the Maine 2020 Vision.
