Let's Empower Maine's Next Generation of Environmental Leaders
On September 15-16 2016, MEEA will bring together a dynamic group of both emerging and established environmental leaders. Gathering at the Tanglewood 4-H Camp and Learning Center in Lincolnville, a mix of forty young and experienced environmental leaders will tackle some challenging questions:
How should we empower, support, and amplify the voice of Maine’s new generation of environmental leaders?
How can we attain racial, economic, and geographic diversity within our environmental leadership?
What are effective pathways to environmental leadership for Maine’s high school-aged, college-aged, and young professionals?
Registration is free, including all meals and lodging. The participants will be selected through an application process that is designed to assemble a potent mix of leaders of all ages from environmental education, sustainability, environmental justice, and/or local, sustainable food systems. Preference will be given to those who represent or work with under-served audiences and communities in Maine and who can contribute to the work of broadening and diversifying Maine’s environmental sector.
