Drawdown Learn Conference and Expo, Vanessa Keith Breakout Session, Recap!

November 2, 2018

Thanks so much to the folks at Omega Institute, including Robert “Skip” Backus, CEO of Omega Institute and Laura Weiland, Director of the Omega Center for Sustainable Living, John Ferro, and Moira Cleary-Dwyer, and to the Project Drawdown Team, especially leaders Paul Hawken, Katharine Wilkinson, Chad Frischmann, and Crystal Chissell, for organizing such an insightful, impactful and results oriented gathering full of great connections and positive forward momentum! It was such an honor to be a part of this. Now let’s take the next steps towards rolling back the effects of global warming!

With the wonderful Crystal Chissell of the Drawdown Team exchanging our books, Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming and 2100: A Dystopian Utopia–The City After Climate Change! 

Paul Hawken kicks off the conference with a great keynote on “How to go from despair to determination? We need a call to action to be the best version of ourselves. Every problem is a solution in disguise.”

Talking about our case study cities in 2100: A Dystopian Utopia–The City After Climate Change!

Wonderful group of participants, lots of great work going on all across the country and the world.

Got to sign books and talk to some great folks. Email me and let’s keep in touch!

With Crystal Chissell talking shop! Project Drawdown let’s collaborate!

Act, Create, Implement, Connect, Iterate!

The Project Drawdown Team kicked off the event on stage (Katharine Wilkinson, Chad Frischmann, Crystal Chissell and Paul Hawken) with Laura Weiland as moderator!

One of the many Drawdown ways to roll back CO2 is by way of a plant-rich or entirely plant-based diet.

Team Drawdown speaks about how not to communicate.

And how to communicate in order to inspire hope and collective action towards positive change!

All of the technologies and techniques we reference in the book are things we can start to implement now!

Great question and answer session!

The landfills of today are the goldmines of the future. Let’s reuse, recycle and recapture the value in things we throw away.

Talking about Sao Paulo with its elevated cycling paths and sleeping pods in the forest in 2100: A Dystopian Utopia.
