"An online climate gathering for the future of Western Maine and beyond"
CEBE is hosting a week of climate conversations to continue to build momentum in western Maine and beyond during this critical climate decade. Hindsight is 2020 - we have a crisp, clear vision of how quickly society can pivot in the face of crisis, and how inequalities will compound and build on each other in the face of multiple crises. 20/30 vision is a bit more blurry - we hold the power to make 2030 go many ways. Join us to be part of crafting the story of what 2030 will look like.
Occurring nightly from 6:30-8pm - one registration and Zoom link is valid for all events.
