Project Drawdown
Climate Change Solutions Today
Jun 17 - Virtual Event

Virtual Fireside Chat Open to the Public

We are in a pivotal and potentially transformative moment in human history. New US climate targets announced by the Biden-Harris administration.  A huge percentage of American voters supportive of ambitious climate action.  Bold climate ambition and plans from large corporations and investors globally.  And a suite of climate solutions already in hand to address the climate crisis at the scope and scale required, led by the research of the nonprofit Project Drawdown.

We know what needs to be done and we have the solutions to do it.  What we all do next to meet this moment, inside our companies, organizations, communities and spheres of influence is existential to our chances of limiting global warming to the level the science calls for.

In past discussions, many of you have asked “what can I do?”  Many of the answers will be covered in this talk by Jamie Beck Alexander.  We will take a tour of the suite of climate solutions researched by Project Drawdown, explore the biggest leverage points needed to scale these climate solutions in the world and we'll hear the latest updates on our global effort to achieve DRAWDOWN, quickly, safely and equitably.
