"Innovation. Creativity. Ingenuity. Genius. When you set bigger goals, everything opens up."

—Paul Hawken, Project Drawdown

Project Drawdown is perhaps the most unexpected and hopeful development in the critical effort to reverse global warming.

Since the findings were published in April 2017, Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming has become a New York Times best seller, prompting hundreds of media reports, events, and new editions worldwide.

On Oct. 19, 2018, the Omega Center for Sustainable Living hosted a rare gathering of the Project Drawdown leadership team, including Paul Hawken. The team provided an interactive overview and update of Drawdown and answered questions from both the in-person and online audience.

The presentation kicked off a three-day Drawdown Learn event. Drawdown Learn connects and supports the emerging Drawdown network by offering a space to share examples, resources, and ideas for the integration of Drawdown and its data within K-12 and higher education, as well as cross-sector and community efforts.
