September 18, 2014 MECA hosted a film screening of Ocean Fronteirs II followed buy a panel discussion with participants from the Island Institute and Environmental Artist Dorothy Palanza. This is a film about climate change and how it impacts our changing ocean and and environment.

Off the shores of New England, in a region steeped in old maritime tradition, comes a modern wave of big ships, energy industries, and a changing climate, now testing the limits of an already crowded sea. But in a pioneering trial of far-sighted planning—pushed by blueprints for offshore wind energy—old residents and new are coming together to keep their ocean and livelihoods alive.
