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. And not only that, but 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.
Almost 60% of food produced in Canada is never eaten. That’s a massive drain on resources that costs the economy billions and average households more than $1700 each year. Reducing food waste is one the top three Drawdown solutions to global warming.
We’re inviting residents to join this challenge to take action on reducing food waste. We will demonstrate that wasting less is not difficult or inconvenient — on the contrary, it can be enjoyable, educational and can save you money!
Over six weeks, we’ll ask participants to carry out some simple weekly activities focused on different aspects of food use and food waste. Step by step, we’ll introduce the knowledge, tools and methods that can help you make a difference. No one is too young or too old to participate, and everyone can choose their level of engagement.
