Presented by Project Drawdown

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 serves as a bridge between climate solutions and people like you looking to tap into their own superpowers to stop climate change.  Watch to hear their voices, learn about their “green careers,” and be inspired about the 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. 

The series kicks off in “The City of Bridges,” “The Steel City” Pittsburgh, unceded ancestral land of the Shawandasse Tula. Drawdown’s Neighborhood: Pittsburgh features 11 stories from a city with a deep history in coal and steel. In response to the impacts of climate change, people from all over the city are mobilizing to fuel a green future – leveraging Pittsburgh’s innovative spirit for much-needed change.

We invite you to watch and share this short documentary series, created in collaboration with adventure filmmaker Erik Douds. In addition, we encourage you to discover solutions and take action with the discussion questions and resources accompanying each film, developed in collaboration with Jothsna Harris of Change Narrative.
