Belfast Free Library
Log Number: APP-246100-OLS-20
Belfast Free Library will facilitate conversations that engage a broader cross-section of the community in ongoing discussions about climate change to ensure that all voices and views are heard. Using best practices from citizen science, climate change communications, and civic engagement, Belfast Free Library and Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) seek to document and archive diverse ideas, perspectives, priorities, and aspirations on climate change from Belfast citizens. The archive will be housed and made accessible on the GMRI Ecosystem Investigation Network that supports local citizen science efforts. Information gleaned from the project will be used to inform local decision-making and planning in response to climate change, as well as represent the community's collective memory on a critical issue.
