Climate Change and Our Economy

A Positive Vision for Maine in an Era of Rapid Climate Change

The GEORGES RIVER LAND TRUST offers an evening of discussion about climate change and how our incredible landscape can be leveraged to make Maine become a major economic player through adaptation. The featured speaker at this event will be Dr. Stephen Mulkey, President of Unity College. Dr. Mulkey is a champion of sustainability science, and has pivoted the curriculum at Unity College to focus on the “what’s next” of environmentalism, sustainability science, and the transdisciplinary (collaborative) approach to ecological problem solving.

Joining in the conversation will be a panel of ecological leaders in Maine who will provide their perspective on climate change solutions for Maine’s future. Panel members include Lisa Pohlman, Executive Director of Natural Resources Council of Maine, Glen Brand, Director of the Maine Chapter of the Sierra Club, and William Behrens, co-founder of ReVision Energy.

A members-only limited availability pre-event reception with the speakers is also offered for $30 (includes appetizers and front-of-house reserved seating).
