Project Drawdown - An Introduction
Connect, learn, and help chart a path forward for solutions-based climate change action at CU Boulder. Students are invited to generate collective ideas for how CU Boulder can impact the climate crises. The nonprofit organization Project Drawdown will be zooming in to speak on their mission to "drawdown" carbon and other green house gasses from the atmosphere. The topic of this presentation will be around their work to compile and implement successful practices and technologies that reduce excess greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and mitigate climate change.
