Climate Reality and Action You Can Take to Address It 

Presenter Joyce Mercado recently became part of former U.S. Vice President Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project. Joyce attended training by Al Gore in Minneapolis in 2019 and now joins over 5,000 other Climate Leaders from around the world in presenting new information on climate change to the public. Topics include the causes of climate change, temperature increases, climate change impacts and solutions. Attendees will also receive a checklist created by Joyce with 70 climate protection action items which will be discussed at the conclusion of the presentation.

“Drawdown is when the net concentration of greenhouse gases in the air globally begins to decline on a year-to-year basis.”

Reversing Global Warming: Introduction to Drawdown

This is a 2-hour workshop inviting our community to see the possibility of reversing global warming and understand that we all have an important role to play in that process. Through videos and group activities, presenters will introduce a comprehensive plan to reverse global warming from Project Drawdown, a scientific study that identifies 100 solutions which, when implemented together, can begin to roll back global warming by 2050.

Participants will:

  • Learn about solutions that could actually begin to reverse global warming
  • Connect with people in our community to find hope and inspiration while discovering new possibilities for addressing global warming
  • Learn how we can change the conversation about global warming from “Game Over” to “Game On!”
