Do you feel hopeless about the magnitude of global climate change?
Do you question whether you—or any one person—can do anything about it?

Drawdown: Reversing Global Warming is a series of workshops that supports you in finding your unique contribution to reversing global warming. Come to this workshop series to learn about the possibilities for reversing global warming based on the research of Project Drawdown. Following an introductory session to familiarize participants with the project, the workshops will focus on creating community around projects and mobilizing action.

Project Drawdown gathers a coalition of researchers, scientists, policy makers, business leaders, and activists worldwide to assemble and present the best available information on climate solutions. Led by author, environmentalist, and entrepreneur Paul Hawken, this coalition identified and modeled the 100 most substantive, already-existing solutions for addressing global warming. They published their findings in 2017 in the book Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming.

This workshop series is hosted by the Paleontological Research Institution and led by Nancy Kasper from the Rochester Pachamama Alliance Community.
