Climate Change Messaging Workshop

  • cloudport 63 Federal Street Portland, ME, 04101 United States (map)

Join the Maine Climate Table and co-hosts passivhausMAINE, AIA Maine and Portland Society for Architecture to explore the results of in-depth research about climatechange messages that resonate especially well with Mainers. This interactive workshop is tailored for communications and policy professionals at nonprofit and for-profit organizations across Maine. Save your seat at the table, Monday February 26th at Cloudport in Portland.

Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis - Sign Up Today!

Over the past three years, the Climate Table has worked with Goodwin Simon Strategic Research, a national opinion research firm, to help us understand what Mainers think about the impacts of climate change, including what they are seeing in their everyday lives. We've identified opportunities to connect with our neighbors and colleagues on projects and solutions that have the potential to bring communities together. 

We hope you'll join us to learn about the results of this research and to bring your own expertise to bear as we discuss ways to communicate effectively about climate change in Maine. 

Tyler Kidder of Grow Smart Maine and co-chair of Energy Efficiency Sub-Committe of the Climate Table will lead the conversation.  

About the Maine Climate Table
The Maine Climate Table is a broad network of more than 120 organizations and individuals from the nonprofit, philanthropic, government, and business sectors that has been working since 2013 to increase civic engagement and undertake actions aimed at protecting Maine's environment and economy from the adverse impacts of climate change. The group is governed by a Steering Committee currently comprised of the following organizations: Island Institute, Maine Farmland Trust, The Nature Conservancy, Coastal Enterprises Inc., Maine People's Resource Center (our fiscal sponsor), Unity College, and Lee International. There are several active subcommittees, each chaired by different organizations, including the Messaging Subcommittee chaired by Liz Rogers of CEI, and the Energy Efficiency Subcommittee chaired by Suzanne McDonald of the Island Institute and Tyler Kidder of GrowSmart Maine.
