Climate Change Observatory Network

Climate Change Observatory Network is a photo monitoring program designed to work with environmental organizations and communities to assist with the observation, measurement and documentation of long-term climate change trends. Using participatory tools and collaborative partnerships, the program brings people with various perspectives and knowledge together to co-learn about climate change and adaptation. The CCON encourages participation in climate change study, develops an interest and community ownership in climate action, and inspires collaboration amongst community stakeholders to develop adaptation strategies and solutions.

Oceanside is expanding the observation network for two sites that will start a program with the school children on Long and Great Diamond Islands in Casco Bay to get them involved with climate change, i.e. to understand what is happening and what can be done to be more resilient.
