The Drawdown approach changes the conversation by focusing on solutions rather than problems. From electric vehicles to urban agriculture: we already have everything we need to eliminate all carbon emissions. Not only that: climate solutions also offer opportunities to fix other societal problems like air pollution and poverty while saving trillions of dollars on a global basis.
Climate action is an opportunity, not a burden. It is a chance to build a clean, modern and healthy city with a vibrant economy, supporting a better and more prosperous society for all.
Join our free online seminar on July 26 to learn more about refrigerant pollution and solutions. We’ll explore how we can each take further action to tackle this super pollutant, including gathering data about supermarket refrigerants.
In partnership with
REFRIGERANTS & GLOBAL WARMING
Supermarkets are major contributors to global warming through emissions of refrigerants — chemicals we use in fridges, freezers and A/C units to keep things cool. They are super potent greenhouse gases, thousands of times more powerful than CO2. Leaking refrigerant systems in a single grocery store typically cause as much greenhouse gas emissions in a year as more than 300 cars!
Help us collect data on supermarket refrigerant use! Find out which refrigerant gases your local grocery store is using, and put it on the map. Be a citizen scientist! It’s easy — just take a picture when you shop!
Drawdown Toronto is co-presenting a series of webinars around the interconnectedness of agriculture, land-use and climate change, in collaboration with ClimateFast, Eco-Just Food Network and Green Thumbs Growing.
Food systems have a huge impact on climate and climate has a huge influence on food production. Agriculture and land-use release as much carbon emissions every year as global electricity production — and far more than the transport sector.
This event is organized in preparation of the upcoming UN Food Systems Summit in September.
Through three sessions, we are bringing to light the importance of the land and food production as drivers of global warming–and what we can do about it!
Stay tuned for the recording of the first event, and registration links for Part 2 and 3 in the series on July 12 and August 9.
Drawdown Toronto embraces local and national plans for a green and just recovery from the pandemic.
Let’s move beyond business-as-usual to create a prosperous, fair and livable society for all people. This is our opportunity to set a course for a better future.
The Toronto Environmental Alliance has taken a leading role in putting an environmentally sustainable and socially fair recovery on the agenda.
