The Workshop…

“At Project Drawdown, we seek to change the discourse of the climate crisis from fear, confusion, and conflict to solutions, possibility, and opportunities to create the future we want”

Through comprehensive research and analysis, Project Drawdown has ranked the most effective existing solutions to reversing global warming based on greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction potential.  The solutions range from the technological (such as renewable energy, electrification of transportation, energy-efficient building practices, etc.) with Earth-based methods of carbon drawdown (such as planting trees, preserving existing forests and practicing regenerative agriculture). At this workshop, and future Sebastopol Carbon Conversations, we’ll ask ourselves ‘What can we, as individuals and collectively, do about Climate Change. In the process, we’ll discover roles for ourselves in shaping a better future.

This workshop will provide the foundation for our future carbon conversations as we look closer into the many solutions.

This workshop is for community, teachers, students, everyone… (register via the Form below)

The Book…

Drawdown describes the 100 most substantive solutions to global warming.

The goal of the research that informs Drawdown is to determine if we can reverse the buildup of atmospheric carbon within thirty years. All solutions modeled are already in place, well understood, analyzed based on peer-reviewed science, and are expanding around the world. ….[read more]
