Introduction to Project Drawdown
A 2-hour interactive workshop that offered the opportunity to reflect on how we’ve been relating to global warming and connect with others in our community to discover new possibilities for addressing climate change.
Project Drawdown is a coalition of more than 200 researchers and other experts from 22 countries led by author, environmentalist, and entrepreneur Paul Hawken. Over the course of five years of rigorous scientific research, they identified and modeled the 100 most substantive, already existing solutions for addressing global warming. Their astounding conclusion: it is possible not only to slow global warming, but also actually reverse it by 2050.
Project Drawdown identifies diverse working solutions to reverse global warming and empowers participants to take part in turning the tide for the future, leveraging their passions, skills and talents to accelerate and amplify solutions.
About our facilitators: Andrea Nandoskar and Ted Bohlen are community activists, vision weavers, preservationists, conscious event producers and everyday change makers dedicated to using education to inspire shifts in awareness and behavior. They share a concern for the well-being of the Earth and all its inhabitants, and the belief that learning about and engaging with Project Drawdown will inspire a shift in our relationship with global warming and inspiration for a path forward to complete reversal by 2050.
