AUG. 6TH: INTRODUCTION TO PROJECT DRAWDOWN
This session will introduce participants to the top 100 solutions for reversing global warming, as outlined in the 2017 book DRAWDOWN: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming, edited by Paul Hawken.
The goal is to show an overview of the wide range of hopeful opportunities that are already happening in the seven sectors of GOOD, TRANSPORT, LAND USE, BUILDING and CITIES, MATERIALS, ENERGY, and WOMEN AND CHILDREN.
Participants will be offered a chance to consider deeper exploration and action in the areas of their passion.
AUG. 13TH: NEXT STEPS FOR ACTION
This workshop will give participants time to dig deeper into the sectors and solutions that appeal to them, including the chance to brainstorm and research the challenges and opportunities within these solutions. Learning more about what is happening locally will help connect people to others who are committed to making a real difference in bringing about the change necessary.
Participants are encouraged (but NOT required) to bring computers, tablets, and smart phones to this session.
