From extreme weather to warmer ocean temperatures, climate change is not a future problem - it's already affecting some of Maine's largest industries today. As part of a three-part webinar series, The Maine State Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation and Science is US will explore how the state can turn the current challenges and threats into strengths and opportunities.
In the second installment of this series, we will delve into insights and resources aimed at advancing Maine's green workforce.
