March SART: Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming
Sustainable Atlanta Roundtable: Friday, March 3, 7:30-9:00am | All Saints' Episcopal Church
Climate change is the greatest challenge ever faced by human civilization, but there has not been a clear, comprehensive plan to address it until now. Katharine Wilkinson will share the pioneering work of Project Drawdown—a global coalition that has mapped, measured and modeled the 100 most substantive solutions to global warming. A book, edited by ecological pioneer Paul Hawken, along with a digital platform and call to action, Drawdown is a compelling case for what is possible and the essential tools humanity needs to address climate change.
Presenter: Dr. Katharine Wilkinson, Senior Writer, Project Drawdown
