CHLOE MAXMIN

FIRST HERE THEN EVERYWHERE

“Our generation will be defined by our steps to mitigate climate change.“

Story

Chloe Maxmin spent her youth on farms and forests of Maine. When the country’s largest real estate developer, Plum Creek, moved in to build marinas, house lots, a golf course and helipads, Chloe stood up in defense. She testified at public hearings, wrote for local papers and started a Climate Action Club. The tiny student club galvanized a movement in the community, achieved the state’s first student-solar-powered school, largest reusable bag campaign, and starred in the Sundance series “Big Ideas For A Small Planet.” Now at Harvard, and inspired by the role of divestment in ending “apartheid”, Chloe asks the university to “divest” its $30 billion endowment from dirty energy. Her tiny group quickly gained support of thousands, and is now part of a nationwide movement. Join in! Divest!
