Drawdown: Getting into Action
Project Drawdown is a global research organization that reviews, analyzes, and identifies the most viable climate solutions. With the help of Lore Rosenthal from Greenbelt Climate Action/Pachamama Alliance - Baltimore 350 held a workshop series this fall to explore local initiatives such as:
Promote aforestation (urban tree canopy)
Save money by using clean energy (community solar)
Reduce waste though composting and effective food management
Eliminate single-use plastics/Bioplastics
On December 3 (Tuesday evening), the group enjoyed a light dinner and shared the climate solutions they worked on.
