An Introduction to Project Drawdown – Practical Tools for Addressing Climate Change

Sat 2 November 2019 (7 Days)
Kay Lynne Sherman, Cynthia Taylor, David Spinney

Project Drawdown describes the 100 most substantive solutions to reverse global warming, based on meticulous research by leading scientists and policymakers around the world. If implemented collectively on a global scale, these solutions could not just slow the earth’s warming, but reach drawdown: that point in time when greenhouse gases in the atmosphere peak and begin to decline.

Many of us long to find ways to implement changes that could shift the trajectory of climate change.

Project Drawdown offers pathways to address this longing: engaging people in real projects and linking people to solid ongoing support networks based on the findings of the Drawdown Project.

Drawdown Book Cover

The genesis of Project Drawdown was curiosity. Entrepreneur, author, and speaker Paul Hawken asked himself the question, ‘Do we know what we need to do in order to arrest and reverse global warming?’ He then gathered a group of qualified researchers from around the world and asked them to identify, research, and model the 80 most substantive existing solutions which address climate change (plus 20 more solutions under study). The result was the book Drawdown, which projects that if implemented, there could be an actual drawdown (rather than just holding the level steady) of CO2 in the atmosphere by 2050. This is a new way of regarding the dilemma we face. And some of the effective solutions may come as a surprise.

It is not one solution, it is many. The solutions are within our grasp and our abilities. And in implementing them there will also be benefits to human health, security, prosperity, and well-being. The solutions are based in a love for nature, and a respect for the living system that is the Earth.

In this workshop, Project Drawdown/Pachamama Alliance trainers will:

  • Introduce you to the vital and ongoing research explained in Drawdown.
  • Help you to find a solution project that matches your individual passion, and ignites your love for the world around you.
  • Guide you as you develop your climate action skills: learning ways to access support information, finding ways to work within existing social structures, understanding how to start new initiatives and finding support both online and face to face.
  • Give you a sense of what the first steps are, and where your path may lead you.

Do join us. The Project Drawdown/Pachamama Alliance trainers would love to meet you, and to collaborate with you in promoting this very timely and necessary worldwide project.
