Orleans Climate Action Network

Who We Are

Orleans Climate Action Network is a group of citizen volunteers organized in 2021 to support community climate action. Our Mission is to advance climate change communication in Orleans.

Working in partnership with the town Energy and Climate Action Committee,  Orleans CAN pursues our Mission and supports the use of best practices for living with a changing climate in Orleans by:

  • Supporting Orleans community residents and town committees in focused action to anticipate, plan for, mitigate, and adapt to climate change impacts
  • Fostering collaboration addressing climate action across town committees
  • Increasing awareness of town, resident, and regional climate action resources and opportunities to get involved in climate action

For more information or to learn how to get involved, contact orleansclimateaction@gmail.com.

What We’re Doing

Our current project builds on the Climate Crises Response Resolution adopted by Orleans in October 2020, addressing town-wide climate action planning and education. We have begun to interview a number of Town Committee Chairs and Select Board members serving as committee liaisons regarding the impact of climate change on the work of the committee on which they serve. Conversations will inform a picture of how climate factors into committees’ current work and cross-committee collaboration, data collection and use, and communication with the community. Interview responses will be summarized in a report that will be shared with participating committees and Select Board members, and others upon request. Completed interviews to date include the Energy and Climate Action and Open Space Committees.
