Drawdown Solutions: Getting Into Action

October 9 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Drawdown Solutions: Getting into Action is a five-session workshop aimed at increasing insight into solutions to global warming and building skills to become effective advocates for change.  The workshop is based on the book “Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming,” edited by Paul Hawken, and it builds on the Introduction to Drawdown workshop.

The first four sessions will be held on the following Wednesdays: October 9, 16, 23, and 30 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Society. A follow-up fifth session will be scheduled at a later date.

This workshop includes collaborative activities, research, fieldwork and book learning. Between sessions, participants will read in more depth about solutions to global warming and choose several to investigate.  Participants are encouraged to review the book and/or the Drawdown website in advance, especially if they have not attended the introductory workshop.

Workshop presenters Virginia Melroy and Sally Hartman are members of the Green Sanctuary Team at the Unitarian Universalists Society have experience presenting the introductory workshop. To register for the Getting into Action workshop, please email Virginia at Virginia-melroy@uiowa.edu and Sally at sallyahartman@hotmail.com by October 5.
