Changing the World, Beginning in Maine

David Hart, Director of the Senator George J Mitchell Center, will be giving a lecture titled “Changing the World, Beginning in Maine ” at 6:00 pm on Tuesday August 20, 2013 at the Northeast Harbor Library in Northeast Harbor, Maine.

David will discuss the role of the Sustainability Solutions Initiative (SSI) in mobilizing the power of Maine’s universities and colleges to help tackle complex problems at the intersection of environmental, social and economic issues. From developing tidal power in Cobscook Bay to coping with increased flooding in Ellsworth, he will illustrate how more than a dozen SSI research teams are working with citizens and communities across the state to address urgent sustainability challenges.

David will be introduced by Ellen Pope, the Vice President & Chief Operating Officer of the Maine Community Foundation.
