Drawdown Solutions: Getting into Action on Reversing Global Warming

NOTE: This is a four part workshop which takes place on January 7th, 14th, 21st and February 25th, 2020. Your RSVP is for all four dates. When you RSVP “yes” please plan to attend all sessions.

This in-depth workshop series builds on the Introduction to Drawdown session. The goal is to help you and people in your community to accelerate and expand the work being done to achieve one or even several of the Solutions outlined in the Drawdown research.

During this workshop you will be doing some book learning, some research, fieldwork, and collaboration.

You will have the opportunity to engage in one or more specific Solutions and become an active advocate for reversing global warming.
That engagement will include a new attitude, a new hopefulness, and partners both locally and in an extended network that you contribute to, and that contributes to you.

The intention is that this engagement will represent a lifetime commitment to reversing global warming – that what gets unleashed in you doesn’t end when the workshop ends; you can be counted on for the rest of your life as part of a larger movement bringing about a more beautiful world.

Session one will focus on small group Solutions sharing and the four levels of action with research on how one specific Solution is active around the world as well as talking about Drawdown.

Session two will focus on communicating effectively about reversing global warming and small group solutions sharing with research on identifying local opportunities for engaging one specific solution and preparing and practicing an elevator talk.

Session three will focus on full group sharing about local Solution opportunities and inventory of goals and resources with research on developing and implementing an action plan.

The last session (which will roughly a month after the third session) will be a community gathering and potluck with full group action planning.

Climate Coffee Conversation

Project Drawdown’s research ranked the 100 most effective solutions — 80 of which already exist! These were then grouped into seven sectors — Food, Energy, Land Use, Women & Girls, Materials, Buildings & Cities, and Transport.

Which sector(s) or solution(s) most speaks to you?

We’ll start with intros to hear what we’re each passionate or curious about. Then we’ll break out into small Drawdown sector groups to explore our common area of interest more deeply.

  • What do we already know about the solutions in this sector? Want do we want to learn?
  • What’s already being done in our area around those solutions?
  • How could we advance the sector’s solutions at a community level — in our workplace, schools, housing complex, and other communities we’re already connected to?

WHEN: 3 – 4:30 pm on Sunday, November 10, 2019

WHERE: Northgate Library Meeting Room
10548 5th Ave NE, Seattle, WA

Climate Coffee Conversations

Come into community with others and brainstorm how we can work together in our homes and communities to reverse global warming.

Project Drawdown’s research ranked the 100 most effective solutions — 80 of which already exist! Let’s talk about how we can put the solutions that inspire us most into action.

WHEN: 11 am – 1 pm on Sunday, October 13, 2019
with the intention to offer these coffee conversations monthly.

WHERE: 3608 Wallingford Ave N
Heads Up: Due to the popularity of this gathering, we had to change the venue from Zoka’s Cafe to a private office space in Wallingford.

How do we have a coffee conversation in Seattle without coffee?!? Grab your reusable travel mug and fill it up on the way over so you can enjoy a cuppa joe while we chat.

Space is limited. Please RSVP at our Seattle Climate Change Meetup group.

Reversing Global Warming: Introduction to Drawdown (with Updated Sessions Through December)

Project Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming

Reversing Global Warming: Introduction to Drawdown is a 90 minute in-person experience that invites you to see both the possibility of reversing global warming and that you have an important role to play in that process. Through videos and group activities, you will learn about a comprehensive plan to reverse global warming from Project Drawdown—a scientific study that identified 100 solutions that together, could actually reverse global warming by 2050. These solutions encompass the energy we use, the food we eat, and the cities we live in. By the end you will see the vital role you can play in the movement to reverse global warming.

What it offers

  • Learn about a comprehensive scientific study of 100 solutions that together, could actually reverse global warming by 2050
  • Connect with people in your community to find inspiration and discover new possibilities for addressing global warming
  • Learn how you can change the conversation about global warming from “game over” to “game on!”
  • People who are interested in the more in-depth multi-day workshop Drawdown Solutions: Getting into Action will be invited to attend at a future date.
