Seattle Awakening: New Events and Programs for the Fall

Green Trees

We are excited to announce new virtual events in September and October. Plus, we are offering a new series, Awakening the Dreamer. This course encourages us to take an honest look at the challenging state of the world, reflect, and discover opportunities. At the end of the class, you will be able to create a new future—one where you have a key role to play.

There are also new offerings of previous workshops: Introduction to Drawdown and the five-part Getting Into Action series. These courses all build on each other beginning with the Awakening the Dreamer course and culminating with the Getting Into Action series.

Make sure to sign-up for each workshop from our Meetup page. This is where you will find important information such as how to join each class on the Zoom platform. Check out the calendar of events to find meeting dates that work with your schedule today!

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.
