Center for an Ecology-Based Economy

Resilient Communities Restoring the Earth


Help Us Build a Local Movement

Whether we choose to or not, Western Maine will eventually become part of a post-fossil fuel economy faced with the challenges of an increasingly unstable climate. We can, however choose to plan now, while resources are available, to transition to a more resilient and ecology based economy that provides for our perennial needs and celebrates the strength of our communities.


Join the Center for an Ecology-Based Economy to realize the dream of healthy, sustainable communities and achieve greater resilience to climate and resource instability. Only by working together and celebrating our diversity and collective knowledge, will we realize our greatest potential as a community and thrive well into the future.
