Consistent and Compelling: Maine’s Model for Mitigating Climate Change

September 14, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Maine’s state motto — Dirigo (“I lead”) — is a fitting one, especially when it comes to combating climate change. Join the American Security Project, the Natural Resources Council of Maine, and the University of Maine’s School of Policy and International Affairs for an in-person public panel discussion on the climate actions underway in Maine and the key role we play in enhancing climate and national security.

Join us in Orono to learn more about the climate hazards that are threatening our national security, and what Maine is doing to tackle them. The event is free but RSVP is required for planning purposes.

Rdml Jamie Barnett, USN (Ret.), APS Consensus for American Security

Hannah Pingree, Director of Governor Mills’ Office of Policy Innovation and the Future
