Description

Join us for a hope-inspiring presentation by and Q&A with Chad Frischmann, VP and Research Scientist of Project Drawdown. Reserve your seat for this free and open to the public event.

Given all that we've experienced in just the past few months, from wildfires and hurricanes in the U.S. to flooding in India and other countries in South Asia, we need climate change solutions NOW.

Project Drawdown is facilitating a broad coalition of researchers, scientists, graduate students, PhDs, post-docs, policy makers, business leaders and activists to assemble and present the best available information on climate solutions in order to describe their beneficial financial, social and environmental impact over the next thirty years.

The book, Drawdown, reports on this research to map, measure, model, and describe the 100 most substantive solutions to global warming. It is the first detailed plan to reverse global warming.

For each solution, Drawdown describes its history, the carbon impact it provides, the relative cost and savings, the path to adoption, and how it works. 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.

This event is part of the Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship's EntreFest, in collaboration with UW Sustainability and ReThink.
