Uniting & Engaging the Next Generation of People Who Love Maine
Are you a young professional living and working in Maine? NRCM Rising is a group created by the Natural Resources Council of Maine specifically to engage and connect people in their 20s, 30s, and into their 40s who love Maine’s environment.
NRCM Rising is building a community of young professionals to advocate at the State House in Augusta for environmental safeguards and enjoy fun outdoor adventures around the state. We connect people, policy, and place, with the goal of ensuring that Maine’s young, emerging professionals are equipped with the skills, relationships, and knowledge needed to successfully defend environmental laws established over the past 40 years and to take on challenges of our future.
Maine’s environment exists as we know and love it today thanks to the efforts of people, organizations, businesses, and elected officials who care about protecting Maine’s natural resources.
One generation after another has committed to the mission of cleaning up our waters, promoting clean, renewable energy, adopting more sustainable lifestyles, speaking up for special places and wildlife, and demanding action on climate change.
NRCM understands that Mainers emerging from college and early in their careers want to make a difference—serving in Maine’s Legislature, starting sustainable businesses, working at nonprofits whose mission is to protect the environment, and more. NRCM Rising strives to provide opportunities for Maine’s young professionals to make a difference for Maine’s environment.
If you or people you know would like to get involved with NRCM Rising, please contact Todd Martin, NRCM Rising Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or (207) 430-0115. Thank you for all you do to help keep Maine special, today and for generations to come.
