Climate Heroes in Your Neighborhood
January 29 @ 7:00 pm-8:30 pm
Hosted by Project Drawdown’s Matt Scott and featuring the stories and voices of changemakers from Appetite for Change, Change Narrative, Hourcar Evie, Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light, Minnesota Waste Wise, Native Sun & Solar Bear, Repowered, Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore, and UNIDOS MN.
To create the future we want, diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice are paramount, both in the Twin Cities and in the climate world overall.
Still, far too often, people who want to help are left out of the solution; often, these are people most vulnerable to the impacts of the climate crisis (including Black communities, communities of color, and other underrepresented groups) while also being well-equipped with perspective and power to bring the change the life. Here in the Twin Cities, it’s time that we “pass the mic” to those who often go unheard and showcase these unsung heroes, everyday people—including those who’ve often been underestimated—who have what it takes to contribute to solutions.
Join us for the launch of Drawdown’s Neighborhood: Twin Cities, an episodic climate solutions short documentary series about passing the mic to changemakers who often go unheard. We will introduce you to the nine local changemakers featured in the series, giving you a window into how you—and everyday people from diverse backgrounds in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and beyond—can be part of solutions. Get a sneak peek at these episodes before they premiere globally, and celebrate how the Twin Cities is helping the world reach drawdown—the point in time when greenhouse gasses start to steadily decline.
