This seminar is co-sponsored by the Climate Solutions Research Collective: https://climatesolutions.ubc.ca/. The Drawdown Roadmap is a science-based strategy for accelerating climate solutions. It points to which climate actions governments, businesses, investors, philanthropists, community organizations, and others should prioritize to make the most of our efforts to stop climate change.
By showing how to strategically mobilize solutions across sectors, time, and place, engage the power of co-benefits, and recognize and remove obstacles, the Drawdown Roadmap charts a path to accelerate climate solutions before it’s too late.
