100% clean, renewable energy is an idea whose time has come. It is, literally as well as metaphorically, “in the wind.” 350 Maine recognizes, gratefully, that many individuals and groups are now taking up this idea. We look forward to finding ways to work together. Many strands make a lifeline. Many tributaries make a river.

 

Join us at Count ME in for 100% Clean Renewable Energy, our upcoming 350 Maine statewide gathering.

 

We’ll learn from local experts and practitioners, share 350 Maine updates, and make connections with one another to help move our communities forward to 100% clean renewable energy. This event is free and open to the public (donations gratefully accepted).

 

Please RSVP here. You can also join the Facebook event.
