Climate Solutions 101

Project Drawdown

Your climate solutions journey begins now!

Filled with the latest need-to-know science and fascinating insights from global leaders in climate policy, research, investment, and beyond, this video series is a brain-shift toward a brighter climate reality.

Climate Solutions 101 is the world’s first major educational effort focused solely on solutions. Rather than rehashing well-known climate challenges, Project Drawdown centers on game-changing climate action based on its own rigorous scientific research and analysis.

This course, presented in video units and in-depth conversations, combines Project Drawdown’s trusted resources with the expertise of several inspiring voices from around the world. Climate solutions become attainable with increased access to free, science-based educational resources, elevated public discourse, and tangible examples of real-world action.

Kiss the Ground

A broken food system is responsible for over ¼ of all human-caused greenhouse gas emissions, it is behind river pollution and deforestation, and it is the leading cause of biodiversity loss.

A revolutionary group of activists, scientists, farmers, and politicians band together in a global movement of “Regenerative Agriculture” that could balance our climate, replenish our vast water supplies, and feed the world.

 

Who do we think we are? Attitudes to nature and our future.

Matthijs Schouten • TEDxApeldoorn

What is urgently needed is that we grow in our understanding of the fact that we are not people in this world but from this world. That we are with the world and that the well-being of nature and the earth is interrelated with our own well-being. Only from that consciousness, we will be able to create a sustainable future for the community of all life. Matthijs Schouten (1952) studied biology, Celtic language and Literature, Religious Sciences, and Oriental philosophy. After his studies, he worked for a long time in Ireland. He has been working at Staatsbosheer since 1992 as an ecologist and philosopher. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
