Local media report UMaine to Join Orono, Bangor in regional climate initiative
The Bangor Daily News reported that the University of Maine will join the town of Orono and the city of Bangor in efforts to create a regional climate action plan that will stretch across Penobscot County. UMaine, home of the Climate Change Institute, is working to finalize a memorandum of understanding with the municipalities. News Center Maine also reported on UMaine’s participation in the regional climate action plan and interviewed President Joan Ferrini-Mundy about it. “Once we get this MOU finalized, which will be very soon, then we will be working more deeply with our partners to really take a look at what the research tells us and where we can make a difference,” she said.
