Project Drawdown Workshop
April 16 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
On April 16, MountainTrue, the Creation Care Alliance of WNC and the Citizens’ Climate Lobby of Henderson County are proud to co-sponsor the Introduction to Project Drawdown workshop – a workshop sharing what international researchers have identified as the one-hundred most impactful solutions to reverse climate change. The event will be held from 5:30 P.M. – 7:00 P.M. at the Morris Kaplan Auditorium in the Henderson County Library.
“The Project gives the uplifting message that each of us can play a role in bringing these solutions to life, and what those roles might be,” says Gray Jernigan, MountainTrue’s Green Riverkeeper and Southern Regional Director. “Come hear about living buildings, walkable cities, silvopastures, cows on a beach, green roofs and more.”
This event is designed for individuals and groups who are ready to identify personal and family solutions to global warming that are within reach, and/or have an interest in working with community organizations and local governments to implement climate solutions and policies. Social and eco-justice advocates Pam and Charley Rogers will lead the workshop.
The workshop is based on the book, Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reduce Global Warming, edited by environmentalist Paul Hawken. The book features the work of more than 200 researchers and scientists who have mapped, measured and modeled the top 100 solutions to reverse global warming, concluding that we can begin reversal of greenhouse gases by 2050 using existing technologies.
MountainTrue champions resilient forests, clean waters and healthy communities in Western North Carolina. To this end, MountainTrue fosters and empowers advocates throughout the region to be engaged in policy and project advocacy, outreach and education, and on-the-ground projects.
