Climate & Change: Georgia's Climate Solutions

An Introduction to Drawdown Georgia

We all care about the earth, but figuring out what we can do to help reverse climate change can be a daunting challenge.

Join us on February 23, when John Lanier will be in conversation with MODA's executive director Laura Flusche, about Drawdown Georgia, a project that shows us how our state can and is making a difference.

Inspired by Project Drawdown®, Drawdown Georgia is the first state-centered effort to crowdsolve for climate change. The goal is to catalyze and scale 20 high impact solutions so Georgia can do its part to advance Drawdown -- that point in the future when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline.

As a founding member of Drawdown Georgia, Lanier will share the origin story of the first state-specific effort to crowdsolve for climate change. Inspired by Project Drawdown's methodology to study the planet's most substantive climate solutions, Drawdown Georgia has researched the solutionscape for our state. That research has identified 20 high-impact solutions across five sectors: Food & Agriculture, Transportation, Electricity, Buildings & Materials, and Land Sinks.

The goal is to reduce Georgia's carbon footprint by 35% this decade, while simultaneously advancing equity in our communities, inclusive economic opportunities, better human health results, and a healthier natural environment.
