ECOCALEDON DRAWDOWN PROJECT PROFILE

Discover how you can help gain ground on global warming by accelerating what is already working. By donation.

Drawdown Solution Tie In: 

Project Drawdown has identified, researched and modeled the 100 most substantive, existing solutions to address climate change, grouped into seven sectors. Put together, they reveal a path forward that can roll back global warming by 2050.

The Drawdown Land Use Sector includes the protection and restoration of high-carbon ecosystems such as forests and wetlands, as well as the production of perennial timber and biomass crops. Deforestation and degradation of forest ecosystems are responsible for about 1/8 of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions today (IPCC, 2014). By 2015, solutions in these sectors could reduce CO2 emissions by 149.5 gigatons and save $1.20 trillion US dollars.

Ecosystems protection solutions include protecting forests and peatlands and legally recognizing forest tenure by indigenous peoples with claims to the land. The restoration of temperate forests helps sequester significant amounts of carbon. Timber and biomass crop solutions include planting trees for timber or other biomass solutions on degraded land, and producing perennial grasses and woody plants for bioenergy.

In this informative evening:
Learn more about the land use sector solutions identified and modelled by Project Drawdown
Hear from experts who are making change with land use sector solutions at the individual, corporate and government level
Build a long and local vision for land use sector solutions in Toronto
Offer what you can give and/or request what you need, to help move forward land use-related solutions in Toronto and reverse our greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

More about Project Drawdown and Unify Toronto’s Drawdown program:
Project Drawdown, founded by author and environmentalist, Paul Hawken, is a scientifically based, comprehensive plan to implement the top 100 solutions to reverse global warming by 2050. Reversing climate change is not only possible, but feasible and eminently practical. The New York Times bestselling book sets out the solutions, the math and the economics of how we can actually do this in an inspirational and accessible way.

Unify Toronto’s 13-month program aims to generate enough activity to make Toronto a hub of Drawdown activity in North America. It includes a series of introductions to Drawdown, seven sector summits, and a 4-session course, that will put vital information about how we can reverse global warming in your hands, connect you with other change makers, and galvanize your action with a new sense of optimism and agency.

Access details of Unify Toronto’s full Drawdown program at www.unifytoronto.ca.
