How Can We “Stop” Climate Change?!

Special Event November 8

After a summer marked by wildfires, air quality alerts, droughts, and heatwaves, we could all use a little hope when it comes to climate change.

In the midst of this fall’s global climate summit (COP 26), please join us for a solutions-focused event, featuring a talk by  Dr. Jonathan Foley, the executive director of Project Drawdown*.

On the evening of Monday, November 8, Dr. Foley will deliver an inspiring presentation:

“Achieving Drawdown:

      A Hopeful, Science-Based Approach to Stop Climate Change.” 


The event is free and will be broadcast live via a Zoom webinar.  To save a spot:

Meet Dr. Foley

Dr. Foley is a leading climate scientist, sustainability expert, educator and public speaker.  His work focuses on finding solutions to sustain the climate, ecosystems, and natural resources we all depend on.

* Project Drawdown is the world’s leading resource for climate solutions. Its mission is to help the world reach “Drawdown”— the point in the future when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline, thereby stopping catastrophic climate change — as quickly, safely, and equitably as possible.

For an introduction to the topic, explore the Project Drawdown website at , where you can watch “Climate Solutions 101,” a series of six short and impressive videos hosted by Jonathan Foley. You can also check out the book Drawdown, edited by Paul Hawken.

This event is co-hosted by the Central Minnesota Chapter of The Climate Reality Project, and by the Climate and Environmental Justice team at Plymouth Congregational Church, .
