Maine Grassroots Climate Action Conference
Saturday, December 6, Bowdoin College

Mainers are demanding action to protect our climate and move as quickly as possible to 100% clean energy. We simply can’t wait for the next election to begin making progress on this goal.  That’s why we are launching our Maine Climate Action Team program with a grassroots climate activist conference on Saturday, December 6 at Bowdoin College in Brunswick. Shenna Bellows will be the keynote speaker.          

The Maine Grassroots Climate Action Conference, co-sponsored by Sierra Club Maine and 350 Greater Portland, will bring together climate activists from around the state, and provide them with ideas, policy guidance, and inspiration to implement a specific local climate/clean energy goal that fits their community.  The full-day conference will include presentations on specific Maine success stories and models, as well as training on effective community organizing strategies. 

At the conference, you’ll learn about creating a community solar project; putting solar panels on school or town buildings; developing a town energy efficiency plan; advocating for public transportation projects; opposing dirty energy projects, developing or expanding local recycling/compost program; supporting a Community Supported Agricultural (CSA) program, and more.
 
Please join fellow Maine climate activists who want to take action to improve their town and build the momentum for state and national action on climate. 
 
RSVP HERE for this important, free conference.  If you can't make the conference but would like to join or form a Climate Action Team in your community, please contact maine.chapter@sierraclub.org or call 207-761-5616.




 

Go Solar in Maine with Sierra Club and Revision Energy

To support our important environmental advocacy and education work, Maine's largest solar installer ReVision Energy will make a donation for each solar system, purchased by a Sierra Club supporter. To get started, schedule a free appointment with ReVision for an estimate for a photovoltaic and/or hot water solar system for your home or business.

Thanks for doing your part for cleaner energy and helping to support the Sierra Club Maine by going solar!
