Handout for January 4th Pachamama Alliance SWFL Community Gathering:
WELCOME TO THE GAME CHANGER GATHERING
Sponsored by the Pachamama Alliance of SW Florida
(first Thursday of Every Month)
Our Powerful Vision
The Pachamama Alliance of SW Florida is working towards a day people in Southwest Florida will live a new dream— one that fosters environmental sustainability, social justice, and spiritual fulfillment, so that we set an example for national and global initiatives that create the more beautiful world we know is possible.
Our Three-fold Mission:
Collaborate with and support already existing and new organizations to inspire, educate, and engage all who are committed to furthering the vision of PMA of SW Florida.
Originate programs, develop and disseminate communications, and facilitate trainings designed to enlighten, energize, and empower pro-activists, giving them the Pachamama Alliance tools and resources needed for transformation to a thriving, just, sustainable human presence on this planet.
Integrate the wisdom of and promote the participation of indigenous peoples to strengthen our collective transformation and create a new dream to live by.
We will be presenting a 4 week study group about Project Drawdown. We also encourage everyone to sign up for the Game Changer Intensive, which begins January 23, 2018. Register through the link below by Jan 14.

Join us for a 5 week Project Drawdown
Study Group STARTED FEB 1, 2018. If interested, join us on Feb 17th.
Project Drawdown is the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming. Our organization did not make or devise the plan—we found the plan because it already exists. What was uncovered is a path forward that can roll back global warming within thirty years. It shows that humanity has the means at hand. Nothing new needs to be invented. The solutions are in place and in action. Our work is to accelerate the knowledge and growth of what is possible.
In this highly participatory, interactive four-session course people are going to work together on the Drawdown Solutions! By the end of the fourth session, participants will select one or two solutions that they are drawn to, and they will begin to engage with others in their community to research how to create and to implement a project that moves the solution forward at a local, national and/or policy level.
Groups working on solutions in different places around the world will be able to build on one another’s work by sharing results with one another, solution by solution, through Pachamama Alliance’s online Community Network.
Promise of the Course:
You’ll be fully engaged, and in action collaborating with others in cutting edge work to help reverse global warming!
