The Island Institute works to sustain Maine’s island and remote coastal communities, and exchanges ideas and experiences to further the sustainability of communities here and elsewhere. Our core program areas—including economic development, education, community energy, marine resources, and media—are driven by the requests of community members themselves.

About the Exchange

The goal of this exchange is to increase the pace of social and environmental change by making solutions more readily available to practitioners across the world. As practitioners share the components of their solutions (what we call "building blocks"), we hope that other practitioners will feel inspired to re-purpose those building blocks for an entirely different challenge.
