A presentation and panel discussion on The New York Times best-selling book Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming. Moderated by Bill McKibben (founder, 350.org), the event is sponsored by The New York Society for Ethical Culture, 350NYC, and Pachamama Alliance.
The event will begin with opening remarks by Lynne Twist (Co-Founder, Pachamama Alliance) and a presentation by Katharine Wilkinson (Senior Writer, Drawdown; VP of Communication and Engagement, Project Drawdown).
It will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Bill McKibben featuring Chad Frischmann (VP and Research Director, Project Drawdown), Karen Washington (food justice activist and urban farmer), Dan Zarrilli (Senior Director, Climate Policy & Programs and Chief Resilience Officer, New York City Office of The Mayor), and Lauren Zullo (Sustainability Officer, Jonathan Rose Companies).
Scientists have done an extraordinary job detailing the current and future impacts of global warming. What humanity has lacked is a comprehensive, convincing path forward to reverse it. Project Drawdown brought together an international collaborative to create that blueprint of possibility—Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming, the bestselling environmental book of 2017. As a living research and communication effort, Project Drawdown continues to map, measure, and model the most substantive climate solutions, and to advance the understanding, imagination, and conviction needed to reverse global warming.
There is a $10 Admission Fee for the event.
