Sneak peek of Drawdown’s Neighborhood: Atlanta
Do you want to discover your role in stopping catastrophic climate change? Drawdown’s Neighborhood, presented by Project Drawdown, is a series of short documentaries featuring the stories of climate solutions heroes, city-by-city.
Join host and Project Drawdown storyteller Matt Scott on a journey to “pass the mic” to climate heroes whose stories often go unheard, and elevate climate action in the process. Drawdown’s Neighborhood showcases the diverse community of people working to help the world reach drawdown, the future point when levels of greenhouse gasses start to steadily decline. Each story in the Drawdown’s Neighborhood series serves as a bridge between climate solutions and people like you who are looking to tap into their own superpowers to stop climate change. Hear their voices, learn about their “green careers,” and be inspired about the many ways that you too can utilize your unique gifts and talents to accelerate climate solutions and be part of shaping a better world and just future for all.
Our latest series features the city of Atlanta, known as the heart of the U.S. civil rights movement, which is located on the unceded ancestral land of the Mississippian, Creek and Cherokee Nations. Drawdown’s Neighborhood: Atlanta features nine stories from a city with a deep history in leadership, entrepreneurship, and activism. In response to the impacts of climate change, diverse collaborations across Atlanta are building momentum to draw down emissions and create a healthy, just, and vibrant future.
