Climate Solutions 2014

Expo, Rally & Summit

We are planning a one-day event at the Augusta Civic Center on March 12, 2014, to bring together a broad representation of people working on climate change in Maine.

Who we are

  • One dozen Maine organizations, from the non-profit, education, business and government communities, have pooled our resources to organize this event.

Our goals

  • Demonstrate to the legislature, state government, and the community at large that there is extensive support for action on climate change and already much work being done.

  • Give attendees an opportunity to learn, network and build coalitions.

  • Create a space for broad participation in public policy discussions of climate change.

Our event

  • Expo - business, government, technology, education and community initiatives sharing their climate solutions with the general public. Theme: “What Is Happening Now.”

  • Rally - activists and politicians, engaging in the political process through speeches, petitions, signs and symbolic actions. Theme: “What We Want to Happen.”

  • Summit - thought leaders from Maine seriously considering public policy on climate change. Theme: “How to Make It Happen.”

How to get involved

  • Become a “Friend of Climate Solutions” by signing our open letter calling for action to phase out greenhouse gas pollution and to prepare for climate changes.

  • Volunteer (put on a workshop, lead a discussion, help with outreach, etc.).

  • Support us financially (overall or for specific program components).
