Vice President of Communication & Engagement at Project Drawdown, Dr. Katherine Wilkinson was lead writer for the New York Times bestseller Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming. Katherine didn’t have time to go into each of the 100 strategies for addressing, adapting to and mitigating climate change that are in this book,but she does touch on some big ones: reducing food waste, plant-rich diets, educating girls and family planning, to name just a few!

 Tune in to hear about…

  • Why Katherine chooses to steer clear of the terms ‘hope’ and ‘optimism’ in regard to climate change (this doesn’t mean she’s resigned to the end of our planet though, not by a long shot!)
  • How many of the solutions identified by Project Drawdown can be undertaken by anyone anywhere in the world
  • How gender equality is, in itself, a solution to climate change
