Maine’s Climate Action Plan and Community Action – A Camden Conference Community Event with Sarah Curran
“Maine Won’t Wait”, the state’s four-year Climate Action Plan from the Maine Climate Council, puts Maine on a trajectory to decrease greenhouse gas emissions by 45% by 2030 and 80% by 2050.
The state’s Community Resilience Partnership, a $4.75 million program through the Governor’s Office of Policy Innovation and the Future, provides grants and technical assistance to municipal and tribal governments to start or enhance their local climate action plans, and undertake community projects to curb carbon emissions, transition to clean energy, and become more resilient to the effects of climate change.
Sarah Curran is Deputy Director, Climate Planning and Community Partnerships, with the Governor’s Office of Policy Innovation and the Future. In this role, she leads climate policy planning and climate-related programs to support Maine communities.
The lecture will be in-person with online viewing available. Please contact Em Lewis to register at firstname.lastname@example.org.
