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.
— A campaign to reduce food waste
According to Second Harvest, about ⅓ of all food produced globally is lost or goes to waste — and more than half of all food produced in Canada! That’s 35 million tonnes of food thrown out, every year.
It’s time to do things differently. Just Eat It Toronto! aims to get Toronto to tale action on food waste. We will help residents build new skills and knowledge about food and food waste, for example by learning new uses of leftovers. Our campaign kicks off this winter. Meanwhile, help us out by taking a quick survey on your current attitudes towards food waste!
On October 15, Drawdown Toronto co-hosted a TEDx event to explore what a healthy, abundant, zero-emissions future could like like. Thanks to all our speakers and everyone who watched the live event. It will be available for general viewing in a few days.
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.
