New Breakfast Discussion Series – Drawdown
Beginning February 2018
The Climate Action Mininstry is starting a new series of breakfast discussions starting 18 February 2018 (third Sunday of the month) based on the book Drawdown (edited by Paul Hawken).
Drawdown identified the 100 most effective measures to reduce global greenhouse gas concentrations in order to drastically slow down climate change. Each discussion will pick a theme from the book, such as food (plant rich diet is #4), women and girls (educating girls is #6 on the list), energy, buildings and cities, and transportation. We will have readings, brief presentations, and lots of opportunity to explore these topics and discuss their implications for our own lives.
Interested in the connection between the food you eat and climate change? Come to the Climate Action Ministry’s breakfast discussion on Feb. 18, 8:30-9:45 am. in Spring Hall. As a basis for discussion, we’ll be using text from the book Drawdown showing how carbon emissions can be lowered by changes in agricultural production and food consumption. Brief presentations from guest speakers will be followed by small group discussion. Click here for a copy of the reading. Also, two copies of Drawdown (see p. 37-76) are available at ESUC’s library. Enjoy breakfast on us! Invite a friend!
