The Drawdown approach changes the conversation by focusing on solutions rather than problems. Reducing emissions is an opportunity rather than a burden. It is a chance to build a strong, clean and modern city with a vibrant economy fit for the 21st century, supporting a better, healthier and more prosperous society for all. The time is ripe for bringing this perspective to Toronto.
Let’s focus on solutions.
We are inspired by Project Drawdown, the world’s only comprehensive catalogue of solutions to global warming. Started by environmental journalist and author Paul Hawken, Project Drawdown is an on-going effort to map, model and calculate emission reductions of the top 100 tools and technologies up to 2050, as well as their financial benefits. The first results from Project Drawdown were published in a book in 2017.
