    The moderator will be Unity College President Dr. Stephen Mulkey. Georges River Land Trust Executive Director Gail Presley called him “a champion of sustainability science” who has pivoted the Unity College curriculum to focus on the “what’s next” of environmentalism, sustainability science, and the transdisciplinary approach to ecological problem solving.

    Mulkey will moderate a conversation with a panel of Maine ecological leaders who will provide their perspectives on climate change solutions for Maine’s future. Panelists include Natural Resources Council of Maine Executive Director Lisa Pohlmann, Maine Chapter of the Sierra Club Director Glen Brand, and ReVision Energy co-founder William Behrens.

    “We are pleased to offer an evening of discussion about climate change and how our incredible landscape can be leveraged to make Maine become a major economic player through adaptation,” Presley said.
