BANGOR — The New England Grassroots Environment Fund and its partners are hosting an interactive discussion to engage a broad range of perspectives in generating creative climate change solutions that address local social and environmental issues in Maine, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24, at Bangor Arts Exchange, 187 Exchange St. Whether you are involved in agriculture, housing, local economies, energy, or another community issue we invite you to share with us what you see happening in your community and to co-create ideas for sustainable and inclusive community efforts.

The Roundtable will bring together individuals and organizations from across Maine who are working in a variety of fields at the local level. We hope to create space for new connections and ideas to emerge and to share opportunities for funding projects. At the Roundtable you will learn how to both apply for and participate in decision-making around small grants for grassroots efforts through the New England Grassroots Environment Fund’s Seed, Grow, and Young Adult Leaders programs as part of a collaborative funding project of several Maine foundations.

Lunch will be provided and travel reimbursement, childcare stipends, and translation can be available on an as-needed basis. Register here by Tuesday February 20th.

We look forward to seeing you there!
