Knowing Change

Through the Living Change project, we are exploring the diverse ways people working the land and the sea in Maine understand their places, their work, and environmental changes.

Diverse ways of knowing climate change and place might include personal and family histories of changing weather and shifting ecology in the sea and on land, such as the decline of species like mussels, and the increase of other species, such as green grabs and invasive insects. Other ways of knowing place and climate change include rapid landscape change associated with suburbanization and gentrification, which limits land and water access, and subsequent shifts in culturally valued practices.

Living Change is documenting the lived experiences and local ecological knowledge associated with environmental changes in Maine through interviews, participatory photography, and more.
