Getting Into Action (Session 1)
September 27 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
This is a five part workshop which takes place on September 27th, October 4th, 11th, 18th and November 15th, 2020. Your RSVP is for all five dates. When you RSVP “yes” please do your best to attend all sessions but know we will work to accommodate and share relevant information. This workshop series is offered at no cost to attendees. For those that can afford a donation, we will offer suggestions for organizations at the end of the course. No obligation.
The goal of this workshop 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 (found at www.drawdown.org).
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 (September 27th) will focus on getting introduced to the solutions of Project Drawdown found at www.drawdown.org and how to start to create your own personal action plan.
Session two (October 4th) 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 three (October 11th) 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 four (October 18th) 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 (November 15th) will be a fun community gathering and (likely virtual) potluck with full group action planning.
