In service of its mission to bring forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, socially just human presence on this planet, Pachamama Alliance developed educational programs as part of its Drawdown Initiative based on Paul Hawken's Project Drawdown.
Drawdown is defined as the point in time when the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere peaks and begins to decline year after year. In pursuit of that goal, a coalition of over 200 contributors from 22 countries set out to identify, measure, and model the 100 most impactful technological, ecological, and behavioral solutions to global warming, and published a book with their findings in April of 2017.
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.

By engaging with these practical solutions in the context of reversing global warming, program participants will experience a new sense possibility for themselves in reversing global warming and protecting the planet for all children, of all species, for all time.
