The Ray C. Anderson Foundation has awarded a Sustaining Grant to Project Drawdown to fund the Ray C. Anderson Fellowship. The Fellowship is designed to foster the development of a new cohort of global leaders (scholars, scientists, entrepreneurs, and advocates) who will analyze the best available research on one hundred of the most substantive and readily available climate mitigation solutions. The first class of fellows has just been named.
“The Ray C. Anderson Fellows come from around the world, world and all are completing or currently hold advanced degrees from reputable universities,” said Project Drawdown Founder Paul Hawken, in announcing the new class of fellows. “The Fellows include university lecturers, peer-reviewed authors, rural development workers, founders of NGOs, winners of prestigious prizes, policy wonks, scientists, entrepreneurs and agricultural specialists. They are, in short, an extraordinary group of emerging leaders who are dedicating their lives to transforming the relationship between human and living systems.”
