“Innovation. Creativity. Ingenuity. Genius. When you set bigger goals, everything opens up.”
— Paul Hawken
Paul Hawken’s Project Drawdown is perhaps the most unexpected and hopeful development in the critical effort to reverse global warming.
With a modest budget and little fanfare, a group of 200 scientists and researchers mapped and modeled the 100 most effective ways to draw down greenhouse gas emissions. The Drawdown team did the math to calculate what humanity can achieve with tools already in use around the globe.
Since the findings were published in April 2017, Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming has become a New York Times bestseller, prompting hundreds of media reports, events, and new editions worldwide.
The Omega Center for Sustainable Living is hosting a 3-day collaborative event, Drawdown Learn, to develop tools, training, and curriculum integration to unpack the rich learning opportunities of Drawdown and its data.
We will live-stream the opening Friday evening session, an in-depth, interactive overview of Project Drawdown by Paul Hawken and his team discussing the project, who is part of it, how far they have come, next steps, and ways that educational institutions, students of all ages, and communities are taking up Drawdown and getting involved.
We’ll begin the evening with a discussion of the happenings in and around Beacon.
