Project Drawdown presents the Drawdown’s Neighborhood to show what people are doing in their communities across the states to prevent the catastrophic impacts of climate change, and they call them climate solution heroes.
Drawdown’s Neighbourhood features stories of what these climate heroes are doing from city to city to reach climate solutions from city to city reach “drawdown” – “the future point in time when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing, and start to steadily decline. This is the point when we begin the process of stopping further climate change and averting potentially catastrophic warming. It is a critical turning point for life on Earth.”
“Drawdown’s Neighborhood showcases the diverse community of people working to help the world reach drawdown, the future point when levels of greenhouse gasses start to steadily decline. Each story serves as a bridge between climate solutions and people like you looking to tap into their own superpowers to stop climate change. Watch to hear their voices, learn about their “green careers,” and be inspired about the ways that you, too, can utilize your unique gifts and talents to accelerate climate solutions and be part of shaping a better world and just future for all.”
“The series kicks off in “The City of Bridges”, “The Steel City” Pittsburgh, the unceded ancestral land of the Shawandasse Tula. Drawdown’s Neighborhood: Pittsburgh features 11 stories from a city with a deep history in coal and steel. In response to the impacts of climate change, people from all over the city are mobilizing to fuel a green future – leveraging Pittsburgh’s innovative spirit for much-needed change.”
From installing solar panels, managing public space and LED streetlights, restoration planting, community-driven sustainability projects, vehicle electrification, energy-efficiency buildings and retrofitting, watch the stories of these climate solution heroes and let them inspire you to do so the same in your community.
