twitter.buttonblue.jpgfacebook.buttonblue.jpgWelcome to 350 Maine!


In late January 2018, 350 Maine along with youth groups and other organizations filed a petition for rule-making with Maine’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). We brought this action to ensure that the climate remains stable enough to maintain our and our posterity’s fundamental and unalienable rights to a livable future in Maine. This includes a healthy atmosphere and stable climate system. After accepting the petition signatures, the DEP is holding a hearing to get public comments.

Join us in Augusta on Tuesday, May 15th to demand that the State of Maine follow its own law to protect Maine’s climate for youth and future generations.

350 Maine volunteers collected hundreds of signatures from registered Maine voters to move this petition forward. The petition represents a formal request for rule-making by the DEP and is designed to give teeth to a 2003 Maine law that propounded a long-term state goal of greenhouse gas emission reductions that, in the words of the statute, are “sufficient to eliminate any dangerous threat to the climate.” More information here.

Here are the hearing details:
Where: DEP Response Training Room, 4 Blossom Lane (AMHI Complex), Augusta
When: Tuesday, May 15 at 1:00 pm
What to bring: Your written testimony to read (5 mins or less), or just yourself

 What is 350 Maine?

We're building a grassroots network across the state to address the crisis of climate change and a world too dependent on dirty fossil fuels.

Together, under the banner of the message and organizing model of 350.org, we're forging a path to a cleaner, more sustainable future that puts the long term health of the planet and its inhabitants above the short term profits of energy companies.
