Concerned about climate change? Let's REVERSE it! Join this WNC regional group to work on Drawdown solutions. Drawdown is that point in time when greenhouse gases in the atmosphere begin to DECLINE. Project Drawdown (drawdown.org) presents a set of science-based solutions to reverse global warming by 2050.
Through this WNC Drawdown group, we will connect to each other, learn from each other, and work to make changes at the community level. We will collaborate with existing organizations -- Project Drawdown, Pachamama Alliance Drawdown Initiative, and many local groups doing Drawdown-related work. We will create subgroups based on interests (regenerative agriculture, solar, temperate forests, etc.) and geography (Asheville has different problems and assets from the surrounding rural areas). We will have workshops, think and do tanks, educational outings, mutual support, social gatherings, and more.
Drawdown WNC will build an equitable, inclusive network of Drawdown folks not just in Asheville, but also in surrounding WNC rural areas and towns. So whether you're in Hendersonville or Hot Springs, Bakersville or Bat Cave, Murphy or Morganton... whether you represent a business, nonprofit, or yourself... whether your family has been in your county for generations, preceded European settlement, or just immigrated to the US last year... whatever shade your skin is, whatever languages you speak... whatever your abilities, education level, or economic level... whether you're religious or not, whatever your gender or preferences... please join us!
It's our goal that this Meetup group will function as a clearinghouse for any Drawdown-related events in the Western NC region, so if you know of a Drawdown-related event and don't see it here, please send the info to the group organizer!
