Community EN-ROADS Workshop

Community EN-ROADS Workshop – October 14, 5:00pm

The climate crisis is a  threat that affects us all. According to studies done by NASA, the Gulf of Maine is warming 99% faster than the rest of the world’s oceans. This shows the urgency and the importance of acting now to help mitigate. Through powerful community partnerships and local action, we can all make a difference to secure a better future for us all.

Window Dressers will be participating in a virtual educational EN-ROADS workshop with partnering organizations Maine Energy AmeriCorps Program(MEAP), and Kennebunkport Climate Initiative(KCI). The event will be on October 14’th from 5-6 pm EDT virtually on zoom. Register below.

What is EN-ROADS?

EN-ROADS is a global climate simulator that predicts how global, economic, energy, and public policy affects the global average temperate rise. The simulator was developed at MIT by two Ph.D. thesis who made it user-friendly for everyday use.  The workshop will use it as a tool to demonstrate how many different factors affect global climate and what mitigations can be used to help that.

What is happening at the workshop?

The workshop will bring participants and local leaders together to discuss climate change in a new exciting way. Participants will have the chance to virtually meet people throughout the state of Maine, hear their stories, and work together to build strong relationships that can result in local and state-wide action. The workshop will also highlight Maine-based organizations that are actively working towards climate change mitigation.

Why should you attend the workshop?

The workshop will empower all by showing the great work Window Dressers and partnering organizations are doing in the state of Maine. The workshop is a great opportunity to spread the word and help more Mainers connect to the WindowDressers’ program. It is also an opportunity to make connections to the broader climate movement.

Kennebunkport Climate Initiative
KCI believes youth are key to solving the climate challenge because they influence and foster climate concern among their parents, communities, and decision-makers.
