Keynote address by Dr. Jonathan Foley, Executive Director, Project Drawdown
Learn about the Drawdown Roadmap — a science-based strategy for accelerating climate solutions. The roadmap points to which climate actions governments, businesses, investors, philanthropists, community leaders, and others should prioritize to make the most of our efforts to stop climate change. By showing how to strategically mobilize solutions across sectors, time, and place; engage the power of co-benefits; and recognize and remove obstacles; the Drawdown Roadmap charts a path to accelerate climate solutions before it’s too late.
