Webinar: Let’s Take the Climate Back
November 12, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm ESTFree
According to research conducted by Interface and Net Impact, 95% of climate experts believe that it is possible to reverse global warming and 91% of young leaders agree. The reason that both think it is possible is because we have everything we need, and both think the only thing that stands in our way is business as usual. Last year, the most comprehensive guide to reversing global warming was introduced by Paul Hawken entitled Drawdown followed by Bruce King’s The New Carbon Architecture. Interface’s “Climate Take Back” plan offers an easy-to-understand framework which can be understood, adopted, and implemented by any organization. The research and the framework will be provided to all participants.
