What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in discussing new ways of engaging with global climate change. All skills and backgrounds are welcome. You might feel confused about the best way to help, guilty that you aren’t doing more, or even wondering if it’s too late anyway. We will share approaches on the issues that will leave you with more optimism and areas to focus that make a difference.

Drawdown Solutions: Getting into Action on Reversing Global Warming

NOTE: This is a four part workshop which takes place on January 7th, 14th, 21st and February 25th, 2020. Your RSVP is for all four dates. When you RSVP "yes" please plan to attend all sessions. This in-depth workshop series builds on the Introduction to Drawdown session. The goal 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. 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 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 two 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 three 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 (which will roughly a month after the third session) will be a community gathering and potluck with full group action planning.

Climate Coffee Conversation

Lake City Branch - The Seattle Public Library

Join us each month as we come into community with neighbors who want to work together in their homes and communities to reverse global warming. Project Drawdown's research ranked the 100 most effective solutions -- 80 of which already exist! These were then grouped into seven sectors -- Food, Energy, Land Use, Women & Girls, Materials, Buildings & Cities, and Transport. Which sector(s) or solution(s) most speaks to you? We'll start with intros to hear what we're each passionate or curious about. Then we'll break out into small Drawdown sector groups to explore our common area of interest more deeply. * What do we already know about the solutions in this sector? Want do we want to learn? * What's already being done in our area around those solutions? * How could we advance the sector's solutions at a community level -- in our workplace, schools, housing complex, and other communities we're already connected to? Let's talk about how we can put the solutions that inspire us most into action. What to Bring: * Your own reusable coffee cup. * A little cash to donate towards the coffee, tea and treats we'll provide. What are Project Drawdown's climate solutions? https://www.drawdown.org/solutions http://bit.ly/DrawdownSolutionsTedTalk How can you make the biggest impact?
