OUR DEMANDS

We demand bold action on climate that matches the scale of the climate crisis that science and justice demand.

 

We, the youth of Maine, demand:

  • That legislators, corporate leaders, and all people in positions of power commit to taking the necessary action to mitigate and adapt to climate change on the time scale that science and justice require.

  • That legislators in this state publicly recognize that climate change is an issue that is currently happening and exacerbating existing inequalities, both globally and locally.

  • That legislators listen to and lift up marginalized and youth voices in the decision-making process, especially where the future is concerned.

  • Comprehensive climate education in schools.

  • A green new deal that prioritizes climate, social, racial, and economic justice, includes enforcement mechanisms, and paves the way to a sustainable society.

  • A just transition to 100% renewable energy by 2030.

 

A non-comprehensive list of the bills we support:

  • LD 658: Resolve, To Direct a Plan for Energy Independence for Maine

  • LD 1282: An Act To Establish a Green New Deal for Maine

  • LD 535: An Act To Authorize a General Fund Bond Issue To Invest in Maine's Rail Infrastructure and Expand Passenger Rail Service

  • LD 1119: An Act To Authorize a General Fund Bond Issue To Support Investments in Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in Municipalities and School Administrative Units

  • LD 1433: An Act To Protect the Environment and Public Health by Further Reducing Toxic Chemicals in Packaging
