About

Living Change is a collaborative project to document and understand the ongoing impacts of climate change on the livelihoods of fishers, farmers, and foresters in Maine.  Through photographs, text, and video, the project is investigating how people working the land and the sea in Maine are seeing and understanding climate change.

Living Change is led by Kate Olson, a PhD candidate at Boston College and resident of Freeport, Maine. The project is part of her dissertation, “Fish, Farms, Forests: An Ethnography of Climate Change in Maine.”

Living Change also has an advisory board that informs and guides the project on communicating the impacts of climate change in Maine. Advisory board members include:

Barrie Brusilla, Forester, Mid-Maine Forestry

Chad Coffin, President, Maine Clammers Association

Joan McDonald, Clam Harvester

Elizabeth Rush, Writer and Lecturer, Brown University

Juliet Schor, Professor, Boston College
