This is an annual intergenerational gathering: established leaders in the environment and conservation fields in Maine and emerging change-makers between the ages of 15-30. This event focuses on helping participants grow their networks, gain inspiration for their own efforts in environmental/conservation work and also participate in skill building trainings and facilitated dialogue on how we can build a more inclusive environmental sector in our state. The Gathering is a collaborative effort between the Maine Environmental Education Association, Cultivating Community, Maine Audubon, and the 4-H Camp and Learning Center at Tanglewood.

Who will be there?
The gathering will consist of up to 50 changemakers drawn by application. The participants will come from a variety of backgrounds in environmental education, sustainability, conservation, environmental justice, and/or local, sustainable food systems. Preference will be given to those representing underserved audiences and communities in Maine who can contribute to the work of broadening and diversifying Maine’s environmental sector.
