Drawdown Seattle Workshop Resources and Events

In order to make it easier to find all of the resources we have pulled together in on place as well as finding future events on the Seattle Climate Change Meetup, we wanted to put everything on one place. We are partnering with the team at Cascadia Climate Action so you can see all Drawdown Seattle and other Climate Action organizations’ events in one convenient place.

Cascadia Climate Action Calendar

Here are all the resources pages that have been pulled together for workshops we facilitate:

  • Climate Solutions Conversations. As Prof. Katherine Hayhoe tells us, the #1 thing we can do to address the climate crisis is talk about it. In these climate solutions conversations, we bring together people from all backgrounds to share what they are learning and doing to help address the climate emergency.
  • Awakening the Dreamer. Based on the work of the Pachamama Alliance and their work bridging between the world of indigenous wisdom and the modern world most of us live in, this 3 hour workshop is a great way to understand why the dream of the modern world is creating so many problems for people and life on our wonderful planet.
  • Introduction to Drawdown and 2040 Movie. What would the world be like if we simply embraces the solutions we know can reverse the crisis and create a healthier and happier world? On this site, you will find a huge number of resources focused on the solutions from the Project Drawdown team, the 2040 movie, and Doughnut Economics. In addition to these resources, you will also find faith-based resources as many of our sessions have been conducted with Creation Care teams.
  • Getting into Action. This is a five part series where we go deep on helping people drive specific plans of action around proven solutions we know if implemented at scale can reverse global warming.
  • Faith-based Sessions. Much of our work is with faith communities and their focus on being stewards of the planet for future generations of people and all of life on our planet. We have also done sessions focused on climate justice and the disproportionate way that climate change affects those who are marginalized and how those who have most of the money and resources are creating most of the harm.

Project Drawdown identified the top 100 solutions for reversing global warming. Drawdown Seattle aims to connect local people to local projects working to advance the Drawdown solutions.

During this gathering you will:
— Meet neighbors interested in reversing global warming, from those who’ve been at it for decades to those newly interested;
— Learn about local projects and ways you could engage to help reverse global warming at a community level;
— Discover volunteer opportunities with Drawdown Seattle so more people can get connected to the climate work that most inspires them;

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.
