Sustainability Solutions Initiative
SSI is the subject of “Sustainable Maine”, a documentary series on Maine Public Television. The first documentary, The Triple Bottom Line features SSI researchers Teresa Johnson and Gayle Zydlewski, who are collaborating on sustainable tidal power in Eastport, and Jessica Leahy, who is working with small family forest owners on sustainable woodlands. The second episode titled Desperate Alewives features a collaborative SSI research team from Bates and Bowdoin colleges and the University of Southern Maine led by John Lichter (Bowdoin). The team is focused on the ecological and economic recovery of the Androscoggin and Kennebec Rivers and the impact that alewife restoration may play in that recovery. These episodes are now available on the MPBN video on-demand website. Additional information and podcasts on featured SSI projects, faculty and partners are available from the SSI website.
