Drawdown: solving the climate crisis with Paul Hawken

Internationally renowned for his work in finding solutions to the climate crisis, Paul Hawken is the founder of non-for-profit Project Drawdown. Based on extensive research, the book Drawdown is a collaborative effort involving 200 researchers and advisors who came together to model the most substantive solutions to reverse global warming. This talk will discuss the huge challenge we are facing through biodiversity loss and climate change. But more importantly, drawdown is about going beyond net zero to giving back more than we take, putting life at the centre of every action and decision.

Wao is a community non-profit set up to educate, inspire and enable New Zealand communities to move towards a regenerative future. Celebrating five years of action and education, our annual Wao Summit is a 360 degree approach to creating and fostering tangible, social and environmental change at every level. From food resilience, to changing the way we get around, to developing stronger community connection – we look at every facet of what it truly means to live in harmony with the planet. This event is one of 30 events hosted down in Wānaka, but delivered online for all to tune in.

Access this event, along with 7 other online events with the Wao Summit Online Ticket. The Wao Summit is a six day annual event held in Wānaka. Its aim is to inspire, educate and enable our transition as a community and nation to a healthy, thriving, diverse, carbon zero community.
