Advisory Committee

The project is informed by an advisory committee that is composed of representatives from municipalities, community-based organizations, researchers, businesses, and residents. The advisory committee bolsters the project through a strong base of relationships in the region, and is focused on building capacity for action. The advisory committee is a key piece of the Penobscot Climate Action’s work to foster an increasingly vibrant, low-carbon, and resilient region.
