Description: Climate & Community covers the work of WindowDressers, a volunteer-driven nonprofit dedicated to helping reduce heating costs and fossil fuel consumption for Maine homes through hosting community builds to produce low-cost insulating window inserts that function as custom, interior-mounted storm windows. We hear from local coordinator Mark Sullivan. Learn more at windowdressers.org/.
Johannah, Brianna, Tanvi, Gus, Corey, and Beth are the team at A Climate to Thrive, a nonprofit working to build a model of community-driven, solutions-focused climate action. Since its origins around a potluck table as concerned neighbors gathered to take action on climate change, A Climate to Thrive, or ACTT, has been supporting solutions on Mount Desert Island and beyond since 2016.
