The Kennebunkport Climate Initiative (KCI) is a scientifically-based, non-partisan education organization aimed to help solve the climate crisis. The uniqueness of KCI’s approach is its focus on educating and empowering youth. KCI believes that the generation most at risk (the youth) will shift politics, stimulate solutions, and ultimately be agents of change. KCI’s vision is to create a cohesive voice at the grassroots level to push for climate friendly policy and action in this time of crisis.
The organization is headquartered in Kennebunkport, Maine, and was founded in part due to the major climate issues impacting the Gulf of Maine, which is warming faster than 99% of the world’s oceans. KCI knows that climate change has greatly impacted the intensity of disasters and believes that youth are key to solving the climate challenge because they influence and foster climate concern among their parents, communities, and decision-makers. KCI aims to educate, empower and activate 10 million youth by 2025.
We are all facing futures impacted by climate change. But by bonding together we can decide what that future looks like. To learn more about KCI and get involved, head to www.kportclimate.org.
