Envision This!…College aged climate activists pedal through New England and help 350maine.org keep Sebago Lake free of tar-sands contamination.

We will broadcast from a celebration of a clean Sebago Lake, interviewing a Maine contingent of college-aged cyclists as they join Maine climate activists. These young adult visionaries are on a mission to learn about and publicize what people are doing in the various communities they visit to become more self-sustaining and Earth friendly. They believe so strongly in developing sustainable and resilient lifestyles and communities that they are willing to fore-go the comforts of home, convenience of motorized transportation, income from summer jobs, and their own free time to peddle long distances, sleep on church pews, and live on a pittance.

At climatesummer.net we learn “Climate Summer is a summer internship program for college students, graduate students, and recent graduates. Climate Summer riders travel exclusively by bicycle in small teams across New England, spending approximately one week in a community before biking on to the next. While in each town, riders connect with community leaders who are actively addressing society’s addiction to fossil fuels by crafting local solutions that strengthen communities."

At 350Maine.org we learn “350 Maine is a grassroots movement dedicated to solving the planetary climate crisis. We grow our power collectively to find real and lasting solutions, to end our dependence on fossil fuels, and to build a healthy, sustainable life for people and the planet...350 Maine believes that Maine holds a unique position in this global movement as a gateway to coastal waters and foreign markets. We are in the path of many corporate plans to profit from extreme extraction.”
