We held a Drawdown Initiative Orientation Session in this past weekend, with fourteen women gathered for what turned about to be described as 'optimal timing' given many of us have been so disillusioned and disheartened by recent political events. I convened the session with my 23 yo daughter, an engineering major whose calling is to create sustainable energy solutions. This was so powerful for all of us to hear from the next generation! 11 out of the 12 participants expressed interest in the five part workshop. Next steps: holding another orientation and from there, launching the workshop series. THANK YOU Pachamama Alliance and Project Drawdown for giving the convener's clear instructions, beautiful slides, handouts and the short videos. It was powerful!!
