Details

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. We will be on the second floor of the church which required attendees to be able to walk up and down stairs. Also, we will accept cash to cover costs for putting on the workshop on the first workshop day.

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.
