“This issue of Maine Policy Review is devoted to the Sustainability Solutions Initiative (SSI). This endeavor, funded by the National Science Foundation, is a unique large-scale effort that brings together faculty from campuses throughout the state to work with stakeholders on sustainability issues through the lens of sustainability science. Sustainability is key to Maine’s future. Sustainability science aims to balance ecological, economic, social, and cultural needs to preserve the planet for future generations. At its core, sustainability science is about aligning research with the needs of communities to ensure that science can inform decision making and lead to more sustainable practices. “
