The course is full of useful tools and tips to empower you to have a real impact, as well as how work more effectively with others.
The course is 4 sessions of 3 hours each, with research assignments between sessions, and an "Action Break” between sessions 3 and 4 to allow you complete a learning project, either on your own or with a team from the course.
Promise of the Course
- Gain a basic understanding of how it is possible to reverse global warming, accelerate and expand the work being done
- Know yourself as someone truly making a difference in reversing global warming with a new attitude of hopefulness,
- Be engaged in one or more solution(s) and/or become an “ambassador” for Drawdown
Overview of the sessions
Briefly, here is what we will do in each session:
Set the stage; get into Drawdown and the top 100 solutions; establish a shared context for ourselves of hope and possibility; begin the process of getting into action. Assignment is to research two solutions.
Learn from each other about solutions that you researched; explore powerful ways to both speak and listen; use those skills as we share our findings; discover a solution to carry you through the rest of the course. Assignment is to research even more deeply the solution you’ve chosen.
Share our individual research; see where we can support each other by teaming up, sharing skills, knowledge, and networks. Assignment is to create an action plan and go to work on a solution, or create awareness and engagement.
Action period of 5 weeks between Session 3 and session 4.
Share with each other our progress and our results, and see what further opportunities we can pursue together. Celebrate!
