A Plan to Reverse Global Warming

Join us for an evening with world renowned environmentalist Paul Hawken.

We will explore Project Drawdown, the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming and the collective action we can take right here in Bendigo.

Drawdown is based on meticulous research that maps, measures, models and describes the 100 most substantive solutions to global warming. The solutions modelled are already in place, well understood, analysed based on peer-reviewed science, and expanding around the world.

Hear about economy wide carbon abatement projects that are relevant to the local business and investment community, as well as how each of us as individuals can drive the new, truly sustainable economy.

Expect an engaging conversation, lively Q&A and a blueprint for our region.
