Paul Hawken is a leading US environmentalist, entrepreneur and author. His most recent work, Project Drawdown, sets out a comprehensive global plan to reverse climate change. The project maps, models and describes 100 solutions that will put the world on the path to a climate friendly future. Solutions range from changing the way we grow and consume food, educating girls and family planning to Indigenous land management, renewable energy technologies and more.
Join Paul to hear about his vision for Project Drawdown – how this global plan can not only improve lives, create jobs, restore the environment, enhance security and advance human health, but can catalyse substantial and lasting action to address climate change. Be part of a discussion to explore the role of philanthropy in achieving this. Then stay for morning tea and a chat with Paul and fellow funders.
