Drawdown Santa Barbara

Drawdown Santa Barbara Personal Efforts with Local Benefits 
You want to take action to reverse global warming – but how? Let's build on 2017 Environmental Hero Award recipient Paul Hawken's recent presentation of Project Drawdown (presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures in cooperation with the Bren School and the Community Environmental Council).
Project Drawdown's essential compendium of researched solutions to reverse global warming is set for implementation! Join others for a special Thematic Learning Circle workshop and discussion hosted by UCSB Arts & Lectures, the Santa Barbara Public Library and the Community Environmental Council. Here's your opportunity to meet and talk with other community members who share your concerns and are ready to learn how to be part of the solution.
Attendees are invited to participate in an interactive exchange with local experts working on effective strategies and solutions. Please review Hawken's book Drawdown or this website http://www.drawdown.org/ prior to the event and focus on the following topics for engagement:
  • FOOD (reduced food waste): Learn about Santa Barbara County's Food Action Plan
  • ENERGY (rooftop solar): Featuring the Solarize Santa Barbara campaign
  • TRANSPORT (ridesharing, hybrids, etc.): Highlighting the options
The Circle takes place in the Faulkner Gallery at the Santa Barbara Public Library. Seating is limited, please RSVP.
"Drawdown Santa Barbara" is a Thematic Learning Circle event; part of The Lynda and Bruce Thematic Learning Initiativedesigned to enhance patrons' experience with the artists and lecturers featured in A&L's public presentations and to inspire lifelong learning.
