ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
Project Drawdown is a new way to think about climate degradation. Rather than focusing on the problems that have led us to this crisis, Drawdown outlines the most substantive solutions to reverse global warming based on meticulous research by scientists, economists, and policymakers around the world. If implemented collectively on a global scale, these solutions, the majority of which are already in use, would not just slow the earth’s warming, but could reach “drawdown,” described by the project as that point in time when greenhouse gases in the atmosphere peak and begin to decline.
Drawdown is not one solution, it is many, but the good news is that implementing these solutions more widely will result in benefits to human health, security, and prosperity. Nothing new needs to be invented to begin the drawdown process, but the solutions come from a variety of sectors, including education, land use, food production, energy, transportation, building and city planning, and even the materials we use in our daily lives. And there are some surprises brought to light during the research.
