"What Can I Do? That's the question so many of us ask ourselves. What can I do to make a difference in the health of this planet? It is the question that brings many people to Awakening the Dreamer symposiums, Game Changer Intensives, and Drawdown workshops. And to our First Thursday Game Changer Gatherings like this one!
This gathering will focus on the many things an individual can do, emphasizing high impact actions, their connections to Drawdown solutions, and, in many cases, quantifying how these steps can significantly reduce or mitigate ones greenhouse gas emissions.
Sure, changing government and corporate culture is critical, but we must recognize that individual action is equally important and satisfying.
Consider this: "However destructive may be the policies of the government and the methods and products of the corporation," Wendell Berry writes (and is quoted by Paul Hawken) "the root of the problem is always to be found in private life. We must learn to see that every problem that concerns us leads straight to the question of how we live."
Because we love the planet and because the stakes are so high, let's put our determination to work by learning more about how to take immediate and meaningful actions to reduce our carbon footprint and overall environmental impact upon the earth.
