Today we speak with Ania Wright, a member of Maine Youth for Climate Justice and the appointed youth representative on the newly formed Maine Climate Council.
On November 19th, she and other youth from Mount Desert Island will be asking the Bar Harbor Town Council to declare a climate emergency, joining over 1000 municipalities worldwide. They will also ask the Bar Harbor Council to create a climate task force.
Ania Wright also spoke on state wide efforts to address climate change.
