Climate Solutions to Build a Resilient & Thriving Alberta
Drawdown Alberta strives for implementation of the Project Drawdown climate solutions with and within communities to build a resilient & thriving Alberta.
Moving Climate Solutions Forward
Albertans of all ages, backgrounds and interests – wherever they live in the province – can help move climate solutions forward.
If you’re concerned about climate change but don’t know what you can do about it, knowledge and solutions already exist.
To implement the solutions, it’s a question of us working together.
The sooner we do this, the better for our province’s environment and economy, and our own health and well-being.
About Drawdown Alberta
Drawdown Alberta communicates to Albertans who are concerned about climate change. We provide information on how Project Drawdown solutions apply to Alberta, and what groups are already working to make those solutions a reality.
Drawdown Toronto presented an evening with Paul Hawken in partnership with Drawdown Alberta, Drawdown BC and Water Docs. The event marked the end of the ReSurge: Canadian Film Festivals for a Liveable Climate, organized by WaterDocs/Ecologos.
As part of The Climate of Change series from the Calgary Climate Hub, a panel from Drawdown Alberta shared how the initiative was started and why they were inspired to participate.
