Campaigns

Energy Campaigns

This campaign group has focused on issues such as opposing the CMP Corridor, supporting the effort to have a Consumer-Owned Utility in Maine that would replace CMP, and opposing unsustainable infrastructure projects like fracked gas pipelines. 

 

This year we supported a bill to create the Maine Generation Authority, which would have allowed the state to directly fund renewable energy projects.

 

We have also joined the Offshore Wind conversation, with the goal of ensuring the decision-making process is equitable and justice focused, and centers the needs of affected communities.

Climate Emergency Declarations

A climate emergency declaration is a resolution or a bill passed by a regulatory body (school district, municipality, college, etc.) that officially recognizes the climate crisis and sets clear goals, timelines, and funding to mitigate the effects of climate change.

 

Climate emergency campaigns have taken place across the state, and are an effort that anyone can undergo. Adult allies are welcome to start these campaigns and having local youth involvement is beneficial. That's why we work to support local climate emergency resolutions and campaigns, in addition to following up to ensure adherence to these climate emergency resolutions.
