I have an offer to make. If I promise to keep this week’s blog to 350 words or less, rather than my typical 600, will you promise to click some buttons for me? You will? Cool! I feel like I win on both sides of that deal.
We are less than a week away from publicly launching Drawdown Georgia, so I want to humbly ask you to join us in our planned festivities. There will be a week of releases and virtual events, and I would love for you to sign up for whatever interests you (or even better, sign up for all of it!). First and foremost, you can click this link to join our mailing list.
Opening night will be this Saturday, October 17, from 6:00-7:30pm, and we are pleased to feature Nathaniel Smith of the Partnership for Southern Equity to discuss the linkages between climate and equity. Click here to sign up.
That event will begin a series of Civic Dinners to follow, from October 18-22. In each, you can participate in a guided conversation about a particular Drawdown Georgia solution sector. On successive nights from 6:00-7:30pm, we will explore Food and Agriculture, Land Sinks, Transportation, Buildings and Materials, and finally Electricity. Click this link and find the dinners that interest you.
On Tuesday, October 20 from 12:00-1:00pm, we will have a webinar that shares the public opinion polling that we conducted about Georgians’ views on climate change. Of note, that polling was conducted both before COVID hit and again after. Some of the findings may surprise you, and you can sign up for the webinar here.
Last, and certainly not least, our tremendous team of researchers from Georgia Tech, UGA, Emory, and Georgia State will present their work, which forms the backbone of the Drawdown Georgia movement we hope to build. That event will be Wednesday, October 21 from 2:00-3:30pm, and you can sign up here.
Thanks everyone! And happy Drawdown Georgia week!
