Taking Action on Climate: Subtraction is Action!
February 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
With a little planning and intentionally reshaping our habits, we can often do more with less, to the benefit of our children, grandchildren, families, and friends. Learn how Maine is leading the nation in requiring producers to reduce packaging waste. Start the new year with resolve and action! Learn how YOU can make a difference on these urgent issues.
Our Moderator for the series is Tim Glidden, recently retired from serving as President of Maine Coast Heritage Trust since 2011. Prior to that, he led the Land for Maine’s Future program and has been active on the environmental scene in Maine since 1983.
