Event has passed

CAMDEN — How do we approach a crisis that’s all around us, seemingly without straightforward, actionable solutions?

On Thursday, Sept. 14, at 6:30 p.m., at the Camden Public Library, Camden resident Molly Mulhern will present “Camden, the Climate Crisis, and You,” an overview of the latest climate science and open dialogue for Camden citizens to identify impact and solutions.

 Mulhern will share stories of the Camden-area community and local action, highlighting work already being done and exciting initiatives throughout the state. Not a doom-and-gloom talk, this evening is designed to provide actionable ideas and connections leading to a fossil-fuel-free Camden.
This is a hybrid event and will take place in person in the Picker Room at the Camden Public Library as well as on Zoom. To find the Zoom registration link to attend virtually, visit the “What’s Happening” adult events calendar at, or click on the Zoom registration link here.

 This event will kick off the CamdenCAN (ClimateActionNow)’s fall series of town-wide climate panels and topics, organized in collaboration with the Town of Camden. Formed in the spring of 2023, CamdenCAN is a citizen-led organization committed to reducing Camden’s climate change through local action, education, advocacy, and resources.

“We help our community take advantage of climate solutions with actionable steps,” said CamdenCAN, in a news release. “Together we CAN make a difference.”

At the September talk, there will be sign up sheets for committees and events sponsored by this group, as well as information on state-wide initiatives for climate action.
Molly Mulhern fell in love with Maine as a 7-year old wading in a tide pool. Since that time she has grown up (some), worked in nautical publishing, written on nautical and social topics, raised a family, skied and sailed, refit a 40-year-old sailboat, and trained as a climate activist. Her talk at the Camden Public Library will provide insights into the local impacts of climate change and exciting information about a new Camden climate action group.

Mulhern is a Climate Ambassador with A Climate to Thrive on Mount Desert Island and a presenter in Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project. Mulhern is also the communications committee chair for Third Act Maine. Learn more about Molly Mulhern’s experience as a Climate Ambassador on Mount Desert Island here.

Camden Climate Talks Commence
The volunteer group will also be hosting Camden Climate Conversations on the first and third Thursdays at the Camden Public Library. Other Camden Climate talks scheduled for the fall include a facilitated panel with climate leaders from neighboring towns, as well as a facilitated panel with town staff and citizens about where Camden stands on current emissions and initiatives. 
CamdenCAN publishes a biweekly newsletter announcing these events, as well as providing climate resource links. You can read and subscribe to the newsletter here.
