Drawdown with Paul Hawken
Hear from a leading sustainability expert and editor of the NYT bestseller, "Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming." Tickets ($12): https://www.eventbrite.com/e/drawdown-presented-by-elizabeth-moore-and-florida-house-institute-tickets-50460630103 Tired of the hand-wringing and blame game? Curious what happens when you mix business and science to come up with 100 here-and-now cost-benefit solutions to reverse global climate change? Join us for an evening of eye-opening optimism with Paul Hawken. Paul Hawken is one of the most respected and widely read sustainable business leaders of our time. His work includes starting ecological businesses, writing about the impact of commerce on living systems, and consulting with heads of state and CEOs on economic development, industrial ecology, and environmental policy. He has appeared on numerous media including the Today Show, Talk of the Nation, Bill Maher, and Charlie Rose, and has been profiled or featured in hundreds of articles including the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Washington Post, and Business Week. He has written eight books, including Growing a Business, The Ecology of Commerce, and Natural Capitalism. Paul’s latest start-up is Project Drawdown, a non-profit working with over two hundred scholars, students, scientists, researchers, and activists to map, measure, and model the one hundred most substantive solutions that can cumulatively reverse global warming by reducing and sequestering greenhouse gases. The outcome of this research, conveniently packaged into a NYT bestseller, is Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming. The challenge of global warming too often leads us to conclude it is overwhelming and unsolvable. Yet there is hope, backed by real science and human ingenuity. Join us to hear about this remarkable approach and learn how you can be part of the Drawdown solution.
